Worry for Ten Hag as two Man Utd stars are doubts for Crystal Palace clash

Worry for Ten Hag as two Man Utd stars are doubts for Crystal Palace clash

Manchester United forwards Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial could miss Wednesday's Premier League fixture against Crystal Palace.

Manchester United forwards Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial could miss Wednesday's Premier League fixture against Crystal Palace, with the club confirmed they have had 'fitness problems'.

Both players started Saturday's 2-1 win over Manchester City, with Martial operating in a centre forward role and Rashford positioned on the left side of attack initially.

United gave Martial until the last possible opportunity to prove his fitness in time for the clash after suffering a leg injury against Charlton, and the Frenchman played the first half before being substituted.

Meanwhile, Rashford picked up a knock in the first half, but managed to complete the game. He scored United's winner on 82 minutes, poking the ball beyond Ederson in the City net.

After the game, Ten Hag praised his forward's 'sacrifice' in completing the full 90 minutes en route to helping United secure a famous victory at Old Trafford.

That, however, may have come at a cost in terms of Wednesday's clash at Selhurst Park.

Rashford, Martial doubts for Palace

According to football.london, Rashford is listed as a 'minor doubt' for the Palace fixture, meaning he could keep his place in the side.

There has also been no update on Martial since Ten Hag confirmed the France international suffered an issue during the first half of the City win.

If both players cannot start the game, however, the door could be opened for Wout Weghorst to kick off proceedings at Selhurst Park.

United have confirmed that the Dutch international is 'hopefully ready' to play a part in the game, with his loan signing and subsequent registration unable to be confirmed before the Premier League deadline to take on City.

The 30-year-old last played for Besiktas on January 7, scoring in a 2-1 win over Kasimpasa, so will likely need little time, in terms of match sharpness, to get himself prepared to play for United.
