Watch: This is why you don’t mess with Man Utd’s Lisandro Martinez

Manchester United played out a 2-1 away victory at Fulham over the weekend and it’s fair to say that Lisandro Martinez doesn’t take any prisoners.

The result leaves Man Utd fifth in the Premier League table heading into the World Cup break. Alejandro Garnacho managed to seal the three points for United after a dazzling run and finish.

United fans were jubilant at full-time and Erik ten Hag praised his side after collecting all three points.

“It’s good and I think we came from far this season with the fans, with this team, with this club, the togetherness – now it’s back and we have to keep that,” Ten Hag told the club’s official website.

“We have to invest in both sides, the fans and the players together, to [build] a new United. We have to make a new history.

“You have to analyse the process and then you see we are improving in a lot of skills during this first half of the season so far. But also realise we are not there, where we want to be, and that we have to invest even more and we have to work even more.

“Everyone as an individual, but especially also as a team and if we do that we can achieve the ambitions we have.”

The United manager was especially happy with Garnacho after his starring role in the second half; the 18-year-old is one of the brightest prospects in the Premier League right now.

Ten Hag explained: “I like good football, I like good footballers and he is one who can entertain, but in the end, it is about end product and that is what he brings into the team.

He had some good dribbles, maybe already a penalty moment, but in the end, he kept going. Great pass from Christian Eriksen, great build-up from the whole team, because it was really composed, how we played that. But the assist and the finish from Garnacho are really brilliant.”

Garnacho’s fellow countryman Martinez has become somewhat of a cult hero at Man United since his signing in the summer.

The Argentine defender wears his heart on his sleeve and production another spectacular moment over the weekend against Fulham.

Former United player Andreas Pereira had knocked into him earlier in the game and it’s fair to say that Martinez doesn’t let anything slide.

Later in the game, the defender lunged in with a full-blooded slide tackle to dispossess the Fulham midfielder.

Martinez has made light work of adapting to the Premier League and we can’t wait to see more moments like these.
