Manchester United's 1-0 win over Burnley might have took them to the top of the Premier League, but that win came at a cost.

Forward Anthony Martial appeared to tweak a hamstring in the closing moments of the match at Turf Moor, with the Frenchman immediately leaving the field to be replaced by Axel Tuanzebe.

At the time of writing there has been no update on Martial's injury, but at the very least the Frenchman would have to be considered a doubt for Sunday's top of the table clash with Liverpool at Anfield.

And while could hand Ole Gunnar Solskjaer a problem, it is one that Gary Neville would perhaps think isn't too difficult an issue to solve.

Martial started off the left at Burnley with Edinson Cavani in attack, as Paul Pogba patrolled in midfield with Nemanja Matic, eventually scoring the winning goal.

But if Martial is absent at Anfield, then Pogba could be used off that left hand side, especially as many would expect Fred and Scott McTominay to return in midfield.

Former United defender Neville thinks that is the World Cup winner's best position.

"I really think Pogba’s far better when he plays off that left-hand side forward position because it frees him up," Neville told Sky Sports during coverage of the Burnley match.

"It makes him more like a maverick, he can go and do his little one-on-ones, his little tricks.

"I think when he plays deeper, he sometimes stands still and plays and tries to look for the killer pass too early.

"Sometimes it comes off, but sometimes he gets too deep."

United are expected to confirm the severity of Martial's injury soon, with Matic also suffering a groin problem late on in the match at Burnley.
