Manchester United will be without defensive pair Lisandro Martinez and Sergio Reguillon for the foreseeable future through injury.
Argentine central defender Martinez, 25, has enjoyed a mixed start to his second season at the club since arriving from Ajax, and according to Fabrizio Romano, the World Cup winner has aggravated a foot injury he suffered in April in the defeat to Arsenal earlier this month.

Man United’s Sergio Reguillon ruled out for few weeks
As for Reguillon, 26, the Spanish left-back has sustained an unknown injury and may not return before next month’s international break, putting his participation in matches against Galatasaray and Brentford in question.
Reguillon joined United on loan from Tottenham Hotspur in the summer transfer window, amid a serious injury to England international Luke Shaw.
His injury, thought to be less major than Martinez’s, leaves the Red Devils without any senior left-backs in their first-team squad to face Crystal Palace at Old Trafford tomorrow, with Tyrell Malacia also out.
