The in-form duo will also miss Liverpool's visit to Old Trafford in the Premier League on 24 February and face a race against time to make the second leg of the last 16 tie against PSG in the French capital on 6 March.

"I think they'll be out for two-to three weeks," United caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said on Friday.

Martial sustained a groin problem in the early stages of Solskjaer's first defeat in charge, but was able to carry on until half-time before being substituted.

England international Lingard pulled up with a hamstring injury towards the end of the first half.

United sorely missed both players after the break as PSG struck twice in quick succession through Presnel Kimpembe and Kylian Mbappe to leave Solskjaer's side with a mountain to climb if they are to reach the last eight of the Champions League.
