Here are the Tuesday, September 12 morning headlines for Manchester United.
Before Brighton, Lisandro Martinez gives Manchester United a boost due to an injury
Lisandro Martinez, a center back for Manchester United, has made hints that he is back to full health ahead of Saturday’s match against Brighton & Hove Albion.
After Martinez collapsed against Arsenal before the international break, Erik ten Hag and the United faithful have been keeping an eye on him. The defender has a foot problem, according to the Reds manager, who stated this following the game.
Martinez was healthy enough to travel with Argentina for their international matches, which was good news for United, but he was sidelined against Ecuador out of caution. Lionel Scaloni, Argentina’s head coach, explained the choice to the media by saying, “Licha, as you know, had a difficulty with his feet.
He “went out [was substituted] for precaution in their last game [Arsenal vs. Manchester United] because he was in pain. He is healthy after studies were conducted.
Gary Lineker suspects Scott McTominay at Manchester United and says, “It’s nuts.”
Gary Lineker thinks it is “nuts” that Scott McTominay is so productive for Scotland but doesn’t play much for Manchester United. He feels his lack of playing time will lead to interest from other teams in future transfer windows.
On Friday night, Scotland once more used McTominay in the goal as they defeated Cyprus 3-0 in their Euro 2024 qualifying match. Six minutes into the game, the 26-year-old surged into the area and headed in at the near post after John McGinn flicked on Andy Robertson’s cross.
It was the United midfielder’s sixth goal of European qualifying, tying him for the most goals with Belgium’s Romelu Lukaku and Denmark’s Rasmus Hojlund. Due to his assist on Friday night, he now has the three players’ single-most goal involvements.
