Man United's Lisandro Martinez sidelined for eight weeks due to knee injury
Manchester United's Argentine defender, Lisandro Martinez, faces an eight-week layoff after injuring his medial collateral ligament.
The injury occurred during the club's 3-0 victory over West Ham United at Old Trafford.
Martinez, who had to leave the pitch in the 71st minute on Sunday, has already missed a significant portion of the season.
Martinez has made eight appearances for United this season, having been sidelined for three months with a foot injury.
This is not the first time the defender has faced a long-term absence.
Last season, he was out for a considerable period due to a metatarsal injury.
Since joining United in July 2022 from Ajax, Martinez has made 35 appearances for the Red Devils, finding the back of the net once.
