Ten Hag has had to contend with a slew of squad injuries this season, with Rasmus Hojlund, Mason Mount, Luke Shaw and Casemiro among the players who have been sidelined for prolonged periods.

There seem to be no breaks given to a struggling Manchester United squad, who continue to get bitten by the injury bug, as news of two new injuries have arisen.

Manchester United defenders Lisandro Martinez and Victor Lindelof have been ruled out of action for at least a month because of injuries, the club said Tuesday.

Argentina international Martinez suffered a calf strain in training and Lindelof hurt his hamstring in Saturday’s 1-1 draw against Brentford.

United hopes both players will return before the end of the season, but their absences will likely hinder Erik ten Hag’s attempt to secure Champions League qualification.

The United manager has had to contend with a slew of squad injuries this season, with Rasmus Hojlund, Mason Mount, Luke Shaw and Casemiro among the players who have been sidelined for prolonged periods.

Martinez has made just 11 appearances this season and only recently recovered from knee ligament damage. He was previously out for three months after undergoing surgery on his right foot for a metatarsal injury in October.

United, as a whole, have been lacing defensive discipline throughout the season, as made clear by the zero goal differential they possess, the only team in the top 6 with such margins.

Sixth-place United is 11 points behind Aston Villa in fourth with a game in hand.

Ten Hag’s team is also in the semifinals of the FA Cup and will play second-division Coventry at Wembley later this month.
