Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag spoke to the media ahead of his side’s game against Everton in the FA Cup. He gave updates on Anthony Martial’s injury. The forward went straight down the tunnel after being brought off in the Bournemouth win.
“He’s available but it’s different,” Ten Hag said. “He came off but he didn’t play that much in the first half of the season so we have to bring him slowly back into 90 minutes.
“He can play 90 minutes but [if we’re playing him] in a row of games we have to protect him so he can have the strength, the power to deliver over 90 minutes, every third day.”
“Not yet,” the boss said, when asked if he knows the extent of Van de Beek’s injury. “We are still doing investigations.
“Once we have it, once we finalise this process, we will bring an update.”
