Manchester United have qualified for next season’s Champions League after last night’s win over Chelsea.

While this is merely a stepping stone for where Manchester United need to be, it is an important checkmark for the Red Devils.

Erik ten Hag’s side have had a long season, already winning the Carabao Cup, and have now met another objective.

The past month has been negotiated through without star defender Lisandro Martinez, who has a broken metatarsal.

Lisandro Martinez reacts

Lisandro Martinez has been paying close attention to Manchester United’s results and last night was no different.

Martinez posted on Twitter after United’s victory to write, “Proud of this TEAM!!!”.

The Argentina ace will be a key player for Manchester United next season in the Champions League.

It is a big disappointment he won’t be available for the FA Cup final in early June. United have coped well without him, but we would still have loved to see him out there.

Martinez is likely to be at Wembley with his teammates. We expect he wouldn’t miss it for the world.
