Manchester United defender Lisandro Martinez will miss remaining games following his injury against Sevilla as Varane out for weeks.

Manchester United have suffered a huge blow after their two best defender will miss crucial games this season.

Former Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane will be out for some weeks while Lisandro Martinez will miss the rest of the season.

Both defender got injured in the Europa League clash with Sevilla at Old Trafford before the Spanish side came back to play a 2-2 draw.

A club statement issued on Friday read: “Lisandro Martinez has been ruled out for the remainder of the season after fracturing a metatarsal bone in his foot.

“However, the Argentinian defender is expected to make a full recovery in time to be ready for the start of next season.”

Erik ten Hag’s injury problems are mounting with Marcus Rashford, Luke Shaw and Scott McTominayalso injured.

There is hope Shaw may be able to return for the trip to Nottingham Forest on Sunday after missing the last two games.

Shaw’s return would be a boost for Ten Hag, who could use the 27-year-old as a centre-back in the absence of Martinez and Varane. United also have club captain Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof available, although Maguire is suspended for the FA Cup semifinal against Brighton at Wembley on April 23.
