“Really bad news…” – Sky Sports share Man Utd injury update from Carrington this week

Posted by

Rasmus Hojlund scored for the third straight Premier League game on Sunday as Manchester United defeated West Ham 3-0 at Old Trafford. Alejandro Garnacho added a double in the second half. United moved up to sixth place in the standings and are currently just eight points out of the top four after defeating Wolves 4-3 last Thursday thanks to a goal in stoppage time.

But center-back Lisandro Martinez, who was playing in just his second league start since September after missing 105 days and 22 games due to a foot injury, suffered another injury that clouded the triumph. After injuring his knee, the Argentine attempted to continue playing, but on minute 71, he was forced to leave the game. Following the game, Erik ten Hag voiced his immediate concerns.

“I can’t say, but it doesn’t look good,” he remarked. There is a serious issue. The diagnosis won’t come for a few days. We make every effort to determine the harm and obtain the correct diagnosis.

“He feels incredibly dejected and miserable. We are all truly at one with him. It is a personal tragedy in the first place, but it is also a terrible situation for the team because he contributes so much.”

Martinez will be absent for two months.

Ten Hag’s concerns have now been realised as it was revealed by Sky Sports that Martinez will be sidelined until April due to a “serious” injury, dealing a serious blow to their already poor chances of qualifying for the Champions League.

The following was spoken during the live announcement: “We have breaking news from Manchester United, and it’s really bad news if you’re a United fan.” It has been reported that Lisandro Martinez injured his knee badly during yesterday’s victory over West Ham, and it is anticipated that he will miss at least two months of action.

Martinez, a fan favourite, will miss the Manchester derby.

Ten Hag and United have suffered a severe setback at a time when they were beginning to get some traction. Martinez is statistically the third most influential player in the team when he plays for United, outscoring their rival on xG by an average of 0.56 every 90 minutes.

After winning the 2022 Fans’ Footballer of the Year award and placing third in the Player of the Season vote, behind Marcus Rashford and Bruno Fernandes, Martinez is a fan favourite at Old Trafford.

He will miss games against rivals like Aston Villa, Manchester City, Chelsea, and possibly Liverpool due to a two-month absence. When he recovers, time will tell whether United has made any progress towards signing a new center-back, such as the much-talked Jarrad Branthwaite, or even whether they are even in the running for a top-four finish.
