Lisandro Martinez will miss the rest of the season after suffering a fractured metatarsal in Manchester United’s 2-2 draw with Sevilla on Thursday.

The defender fell to the floor unchallenged in the closing stages of the Europa League quarter-final first leg at Old Trafford and was carried off the pitch by Sevilla’s Marcos Acuna and Gonzalo Montiel, two of his Argentina team-mates.

Martinez has been a key part of Erik ten Hag’s side since joining his manager in swapping Ajax for United last summer, going on to play 45 games in all competitions in his debut season.

Raphael Varane is expected to be out for a few weeks with a foot injury, United confirmed.
