Almost equally as bad as the longer term injuries of Licha, Shaw and Malacia has been this constant short term injuries to Varane/Lindelof/Maguire which basically means we haven't had the same back line all that often if even for more than 3 games. This has been a season from hell

This injury is a pain in the arse, if we are going to challenge for the FA cup he'd have been a big plus for us.

Personally I'd like to see him given a go at holding midfield alongside Mainoo and Bruno.

He doesn't have a history of injuries.

On the other hand we have a history of being run by idiots.
This 100%

Twice he has been rushed back now from Injury, only to compound his injuries even further.

Literally our most important player, but cannot be relied upon in any way to stay fit. Needs to be looked at for replacement as a priority.

I mean, he does have a history of muscle injuries. He could've been rushed back this time, but it's a different injury to the one he was recovering from.

It's not a coincidence all these players who have pretty normal injury records come here and then start picking up issues. Jim the Rat is going to get the bottom of this.

For what it's worth, this is a bit of an overreaction re Martinez - he basically had the big injury, we rushed him back, then a man fell on his knee in a weird accident, then this. It just seems like more because the initial injury was last season then the repeat was this season + the knee.

He had 12 games missed since he started his professional career, for both club and country. He has now missed 44 games for United and counting. I wouldn't say the problem is with him.
The problems seemed to start his last season at Ajax. His last season at Ajax he looks to have been out twice. First he got injured in a match against Feyenord and played one month later. Then he got another injury later that season and was out for the rest of the season (missed 10 matches according to transfermarkt).

Looking at games missed is misleading. Both serious muscle injuries happened during summer or until thev season ended.

Do you think Liverpool, arsenal, city etc dial down their intensity in training?
I actually don't know. But after Hojlund it's the second recent major injury in training from a season full of injury. So I'm thinking something is wrong. I think maybe our training is more intense or there's some other thing wrong with it. Maybe our facilities are poor? Or our medical staff. I don't know. But something other than bad luck or averages.

The thing about muscle injuries is that they can be related to any other thing that you have including an other muscle injury. The best way to get a muscle injury is to have an sort of imbalance when you move, it can be from pain, loose or tight articulations, muscle stiffness or anything.

From the outside we can't actually say what the issue is, it could be players not giving proper feedback, inappropriate training/rehab sessions, bad luck, lack of concentration during fitness training, reckless coaching/medical staff...

It says more about us than it does him when you look at the whole picture
Not necessarily. It could also be the more physical league p to Eredivise. But in general I agree with you. We have a problem. It’s not normal that you have this many injuries in one season. Especially not for the cb position.

Is varane not injured? He was subbed at half time and didn't come out of the changing room until half way through the 2nd half
He’s injured but he himself told a reporter just after the game that it was just a minor injury.

When you're muscle is not fully strengthened, the other muscles must compensate to make up for that. This causes further injuries in other areas.
