ERIK TEN HAG has confirmed that Anthony Martial picked up an injury during the derby win against Manchester City.
The Red Devils boss confirmed that the French forward had a “complaint” at half time so he had to take him off.
He said: “After half-time, we had to sub Martial, he had some complaints, and the game changed.”
However, the Dutch boss was full of praise for Marcus Rashford who he revealed played through pain in order to help the side.
He added: “Players have to be resilient.
“You get kicked in a game. It happened and it hurts but you have to keep going.
“You have to do it to get the right result and performance.
“Deal with the painful moment or even if it strays painful the game will go on.
“That’s what he did today and he was rewarded for it.

“In top football, you have to suffer and sacrifice to get the right result and win something.”
Rashford spoke about his knock after the game, and he admitted that he had to “push through” the pain.
He said: “It was just a little knock and in games like this you have to try and push through and thankfully I did that and scored the goal at the end to win the game.
“That’s what we set out to do. That’s always the aim in every game but is a little bit special.
“Either way we are pleased to get the three points and keep winning at Old Trafford.”
