The Argentine has been one of the best defenders in the league and an integral part of Erik ten Hag’s side since joining from Ajax last summer.

Speaning on the Overlap, Carragher admitted that he is a ‘special player’

‘Lisandro Martínez has been brilliant. To be that small and play centre back, you obviously have to be a special player.’ the former Liverpool defender said.

‘He’s been a big part of Manchester United’s spirit. There was a game I saw a few weeks ago and he was a sub, and someone scored a late goal, and he was right involved in the celebrations.

‘At the World Cup with Argentina, we saw him have that fight – with him and Casemiro coming in, they feel more powerful and strong. Someone of that size will get exposed in the air – that has to happen at some stage.

‘Every player has weaknesses; the best players hide them or make sure they don’t get exposed. He’s a really good player and he’s surprised me the way he’s coped.’
