Epic compilation of Lisandro Martinez at Man United shows he's been the defensive signing of the summer in the Premier League

A stunning compilation of Lisandro Martinez at Manchester United shows he's been colossal at the back this season.

Martinez has starred for Man United who shelled out a reported £47 million to acquire his services from Ajax last summer.

He was one of Erik ten Hag's main transfer targets following his appointment and the defender dubbed 'The Butcher' hasn't disappointed.

Martinez has played 15 games in all competitions and has already become one of Ten Hag's main lieutenants.

"Martinez has been top this season but Varane gives us that something different, that speed, that experience and physicality," he said. "I think he could be a huge loss.

"You need them two [Varane and Martinez] back together. We've seen straight away that those two together make us a different team, it's as simple as that."
