Manchester United’s hopes of qualifying for next season’s Champions League suffered a setback with the news that defender, Lisandro Martinez, is facing at least eight weeks out with knee ligament damage.
The Argentine World Cup winner had only recently returned from a foot injury that has kept him out for most of the season.

The 26-year-old was forced off during Sunday’s 3-0 win over West Ham as his right knee buckled under the weight of Vladimir Coufal as the pair battled for possession.
Martinez is now set to miss most of the remainder of the campaign, although he could potentially return for the final seven Premier League games of the season and the latter stages of the FA Cup.
