One being the striker position after Anthony Martial picked up an injury on Thursday. Today Erik ten Hag started the game with no centre-forward as he benched Cristiano Ronaldo for not being match fit.

For this reason, the club is now looking for a striker who is willing to accept a secondary role in the team, as Cristiano will obviously the main man upfront if he ends up staying. Martial is expected to come back from in the next couple of weeks after medical tests indicated it wasn’t that serious of an injury.
