Manchester United fans had a 50/50 day yesterday after the 3-0 win against West Ham United at Old Trafford. Man United leap over West Ham in the Premier League table and sit 6th with 38 points. Man United manager Erik Ten Hag was delighted to see his team performing well with young players.

Despite the win, everyone was concerned about seeing Lisandro Martinez injured. The Argentinean center-back held his knee after West Ham United full-back Vladimir Coufal fell on his leg, pushing the knee inward. Many of the Man United players went over to check on their teammate, and he limped back to the changing room. It is unfortunate for the defender as he suffered two bad injuries last year. He has only played 10 matches for Manchester United this season in all competitions.

Ten Hag spoke after the game and did not hide his worry about the injury. Ten Hag said, "I'm worried as all the fans. Everyone knows why I brought him in. He brings his winning mentality, and he's a fantastic footballer. A great defender, good with the ball, very important for our game." Man United fans feared that it was an ACL injury and that the player would miss the rest of the season.

Man United now know the extent of the injury. Lisandro Martínez has a sprained collateral ligament. The worst scenario was ruled out, as he won't have surgery. The player is expected to be put in for around eight weeks.
