Martinez, Lindelof Deal Man Utd Fresh Injury Blow

 

Manchester United defenders Lisandro Martinez and Victor Lindelof have been ruled out of action for at least a month due to muscle injuries.

A series of injuries have decimated Argentine World Cup winner Martinez’s season.

The former Ajax man picked up a calf problem when making his return from a long-term knee issue as a substitute in Saturday’s 1-1 draw at Brentford.

Martinez had replaced Lindelof after the Swede picked up a hamstring injury.

A difficult second season for United boss Erik ten Hag has been blighted by the consistent loss of key players to injury.

The Red Devils are sixth in the Premier League, 11 points off the top four with nine games remaining.

Martinez and Lindelof are also set to miss the FA Cup semi-final against Coventry later this month.
