Erik Ten Hag provides an update on Lisandro Martinez's injury

Lisandro Martinez failed to guard Manchester United's defense to the end against The Gunners. The 25-year-old Argentine was withdrawn midway through the second half. Lisandro appeared to be in pain with his foot midway through the second half. Finally, in the 67th minute, he was replaced by Harry Maguire. Lisandro's absence at the back had a bad influence on Man United. The Red Devils' defense wall became porous, then Arsenal easily scored two goals at the end of the game.

Man United finally had to recognize Arsenal's superiority with a score of 1-3 in the 4th week of the 2023/2024 Premier League at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday. After the match, Lisandro looked safe and he left the stadium without the aid of crutches or protective shoes. This indicates that the problem with Lisandro's feet is not as serious as expected. Of course, Man United can also be a little more relieved because the list of player injuries did not get longer at the start of this season. Manager Erik Ten Hag also revealed that Lisandro's condition was fine. The substitution was made only to anticipate the worst.

“Lisandro had problems with his legs but I'm not sure it's an injury," he said as quoted by 90min. "What is clear is that we still have to wait, then make a diagnosis," he continued. Meanwhile, Lisandro plans to immediately head to the Argentina national team training camp. He was called up to prepare for the 2026 World Cup qualification. Argentina will face Ecuador on September 8 2023. Next, the current WC winners ARG will visit Bolivia on September 13 2023.
