Cristiano Ronaldo expected to start Manchester derby due to striker shortage2022-09-30 12:32
Cristiano Ronaldo may start the Manchester derby amid a shortage of strikers.
The Manchester derby is just around the corner, but Manchester United is stretched thin in the employment of the forward position. According to "The Times" Manchester United reporter Paul Hurst, Anthony Martial, and Marcus Rashford have not joined the team for training this week, and it is doubtful that they will play Manchester City on Sunday.
Among them, Martial was affected by hamstring and Achilles tendon injuries, so he only played once for Manchester United this season, with a cumulative playing time of about 44 minutes. Rashford 's muscle injury is relatively minor, but there is no official confirmation that he has recovered.
Ten Hag will have to start Cristiano Ronaldo, 37, in Sunday's league game to replace Martial and Rashford after injuries, according to The Telegraph's James Duck.
So far this season, CR7 has only started 3 times in Manchester United's 10 games in all competitions, and the only goal is a penalty. The last time he started in the Premier League for Manchester United was on August 13, when Manchester United lost 4-0 to Brentford.
