Manchester United's injury crisis has worsened as Sergio Reguilon and Lisandro Martinez have both been sidelined. Martinez aggravated a foot injury he suffered in a game against Arsenal, but bravely continued playing in the following matches against Brighton and Bayern Munich. However, it has now been determined that he needs a period of recovery and rehabilitation. Reguilon, who arrived on loan in the summer, will miss the upcoming game against Crystal Palace and could be out until after the next international break.
This leaves United without a senior left-back, adding to their defensive woes. Despite the setbacks, manager Erik ten Hag is hopeful that Mason Mount will be ready to start after playing 45 minutes in the last game. With no other senior left-backs available, Sofyan Amrabat may be forced to deputize in that position. Ten Hag has expressed confidence in Amrabat's abilities and believes he can contribute to the team.
