Martinez could return for Brentford game

Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag has confirmed that Lisandro Martinez could be available for the Premier League meeting against Brentford on the road.

The Argentine has been on the sidelines since his knee injury in early February, but he could be in the matchday squad to face the Bees on Saturday evening.

Speaking in today's press conference, Ten Hag said that the Argentine has been making good progress and there is a chance that he could be involved at Brentford.

Ten Hag did not provide an update on the rest of the squad, but the likes of Harry Maguire, Casemiro and Jonny Evans could also return for the trip to west London.

United are currently nine points behind the fourth spot occupied by Aston Villa with a game in hand. They face a huge task ahead to qualify for the Champions League.

The club are also behind Tottenham Hotspur by a margin of six points. They will need both teams to drop points in the coming weeks in order to make the top four.
