Manchester United forward Anthony Martial was spotted at Wing's Chinese Restaurant on Thursday evening.

Martial had dinner with girlfriend Melanie Da Cruz who was seen pushing a pram in a black fur jacket as the pair left the Lincoln Square restaurant.

The 23-year-old was seen sporting a black and white hoodie, ripped grey jeans and white trainers.

The Frenchman has enjoyed more playing time since the arrival of interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Old Trafford, and looks set to feature against Brighton on Saturday.

In his Brighton pre-match press conference Solskjaer revealed that Alexis Sanchez is back in contention.

‘A player loves to play football, it doesn't matter who you are, and he's been hindered by injury. I know how frustrating that can be and how eager you are to get back' said Solskjaer.

‘Maybe in the Reading game at half-time he should have told me to come off because the next 15 or 20 minutes were a setback.

'But he's champing at the bit in training. He's attitude has been fantastic in training and I'm looking forward to seeing him, I've got loads of good players to choose from.’

The Norwegian faces the Seagulls looking to extend his 100 per cent record to seven wins. He warned the United players not to ease up after the 1-0 win over Spurs raised their hopes of finishing in the top-four.

‘You go into every single game at Manchester United as a player or manager thinking you'll win the next one, that's just the nature of this club,’ said Solskjaer. ‘We've had six good games but the next one is the most important one.

‘Everyone said about Tottenham being the test. I don't think that's a test of attitude. The players are going to be up for that game. I’m looking for a reaction in a home game against a team you should dominate and be better than. These are the points that will get you up the table.

‘You cannot be too confident, it's complacency, it's the other side of it. I want players to be confident but not complacent and take their foot off the pedal because that's a big difference for me. Take people on, running, passing forward, getting the crowd with them, because that's what it's about.’
