Man Utd star Lisandro Martinez has already proved Carragher wrong over Haaland battle

However, the Argentinian has proved to be a solid presence in Erik ten Hag’s backline and has been one of the Dutchman’s most consistent performers aside from a nervy debut against Brentford.

Martinez will feel confident therefore that he can repeat his display from the last time he faced Haaland when Ajax thrashed Dortmund 4-0 in the Champions League last season. Haaland had a rare off day in front of goal as Martinez and his Ajax colleagues kept a clean sheet at the Johan Cruyff Arena.

And he will be confident of producing a similar display for United in his first local derby at Pep Guardiola’s City, who are unbeaten with five wins from seven games this season.
