Lisandro Martínez man of the match performance vs Southampton

Manchester United defender Lisandro Martinez put out yet another man of the match performance against Southampton.

Man United recorded their second win in a row after they sealed a tight 1-0 win over the Saints.

Bruno Fernandes may have scored the match-winning goal in the second half, but Martinez’s commanding display at the back played a huge role in silencing Southampton from salvaging a point.

The Argentine’s performance earned him the man of the match award, a couple of days after he had won the award after United’s 2-1 win over Liverpool.

His display was highly appreciated by his teammates and fans, thanks to his fighting spirit and determination.

Despite his height, the Martinez hasn’t lost an aerial duel so far and against Southampton, he was yet again dominant in air.

The former Ajax defender is increasingly likely to maintain his role when United face Leicester City on Thursday next week.
