In the 2-0 loss to Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League on Tuesday, Lingard was substituted just before halftime with a hamstring injury. Martial's groin problem saw him withdrawn before the start of the second half.
United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says the players will be "out for two to three weeks, looking at it now."
Alexis Sanchez was resting up in the Manchester United dugout moments after getting substituted when he got a tap on the arm.
It was Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, telling him to get out of the manager's seat and find another.
There's no doubt who's the boss inside Old Trafford these days.
MANCHESTER, England (AP) — Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has some serious selection dilemmas to weigh up as he looks to make more history in his record-setting start as Manchester United manager.
United beat second-tier struggler Reading 2-0 in the third round of the FA Cup on Saturday for a fifth straight win since Solskjaer replaced the fired Jose Mourinho last month. It ties the record of Matt Busby, who also won his first five games in charge in the 1946-47 season.

NEWCASTLE, England (AP) — Ole Gunnar Solskjaer became only the second manager to win his first four matches in charge of Manchester United as his team beat Newcastle 2-0 thanks to second-half goals by Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford on Wednesday.

MANCHESTER, England (AP) — Paul Pogba is feeling so good at Manchester United these days that he's practicing his goal celebrations during the pre-game warmup.

Ashley Young struck into the top corner to put United ahead in the 13th minute, Juan Mata coolly slotted in the second from Marcus Rashford's cutback in the 28th and Romelu Lukaku ended his 997-minute wait for a goal at Old Trafford in the 42nd.
SOUTHAMPTON, England (AP) — Manchester United came from two goals down after 20 minutes to draw at Southampton 2-2 in the English Premier League on Saturday, with Romelu Lukaku playing his part in the recovery by scoring for the first time since mid-September.
Romelu Lukaku spends a lot of his spare time watching videos and YouTube clips of some of the world's greatest strikers in a bid to improve his own game.
If he watches footage of his own recent performances for Manchester United, the Belgium striker may understand why he was dropped at the weekend as he goes through the toughest period of his time at England's biggest club.
The attackers who spearheaded Belgium's run to the World Cup semifinals were missing when Chelsea and Manchester United took to the field for their Premier League games on Sunday.
It didn't prove to be an issue.
Without the injured Eden Hazard, Chelsea romped to its biggest win of the season in any competition — a 4-0 thrashing of Burnley.
Without the dropped Romelu Lukaku, United played one of its best matches of a turbulent season and beat Everton 2-1 at Old Trafford.

The result left Belgium with six points from two games in Group 2 of the top-tier League A, three points more than Switzerland. Iceland lost its two matches.
WATFORD, England (AP) — Manchester United ended Watford's unexpectedly perfect start to the English Premier League with a 2-1 victory in the fifth round on Saturday.
Romelu Lukaku and Chris Smalling scored inside three minutes in the first half and Jose Mourinho's side had to withstand a second-half fightback by Watford.
LONDON (AP) — After the furore that followed straight Premier League defeats for Manchester United, Jose Mourinho's team produced a routine 2-0 victory over Burnley on Sunday.
Romelu Lukaku's first-half double put United in control before the second half briefly took a dramatic turn when Burnley goalkeeper Joe Hart saved Paul Pogba's penalty kick and substitute Marcus Rashford was sent off for violent conduct only 11 minutes after coming on.
BURNLEY, England (AP) — Romelu Lukaku's first-half double gave an improved Manchester United a 2-0 win over Burnley in the Premier League on Sunday.
Only a second-half penalty miss from Paul Pogba, and Marcus Rashford's sending off shortly after, prevented United from producing the margin of victory its dominant performance merited.
ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Jose Mourinho said he wouldn't have wanted to pay money to watch this match — but the Manchester United manager had to admit there were a couple sparkling goals.

Belgium reached the World Cup semifinals for the first time in 32 years, holding off five-time champion Brazil 2-1 Friday in one of the country's greatest soccer feats.
"We've achieved something that is really beautiful," said Kevin De Bruyne, who scored Belgium's second goal, "and it's not easy."
KAZAN, Russia (AP) — Belgium striker Romelu Lukaku won't be heard complaining that his team's reward for winning its World Cup group is ending up in what appears to be the far harder side of the draw and meeting five-time champion Brazil in the quarterfinals.
Friday evening's game in Kazan brings together the two highest-ranked teams left in the tournament following Germany's early exit. Brazil is ranked second and Belgium third. Whoever wins plays either France or Uruguay.
ST. PETERSBURG, Russia (AP) — Romelu Lukaku watches video clips of great strikers on his computer to help hone his own goal scoring skills: Cristiano Ronaldo, Didier Drogba, Thierry Henry.
