Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard are major doubts for Manchester United’s FA Cup clash with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Monday night after limping out of the Champions League defeat to Paris Saint-German.

Martial went off at half-time after appearing to suffer a recurrence of a groin problem. It limited his ability to play successive games earlier in the season and this was his second game in four days.

Lingard went down clutching his left hamstring and had to go off in added time at the end of the first half after receiving treatment.

Anthony Martial is a major doubt for Manchester United’s FA Cup clash with Chelsea

United are anxiously waiting for the results of scans on both players amid fears that they will not be fit in time to face Chelsea in the fifth round of the FA Cup.

Losing both Martial and Lingard would be a major setback for caretaker boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer given how much he has relied on their attacking trident with Marcus Rashford since taking over in December.

Romelu Lukaku and Juan Mata are now on standby to come in against Chelsea and, possibly, against Liverpool a week on Sunday.

‘You don’t know with muscular injuries, hamstring and groin,’ said Solskjaer.

‘We’ll need a couple of days to assess them. Jesse and Anthony are big parts of our squad.

‘They’ve played really well. We need to find a different way to play when Anthony and Jesse are out.’
