Manchester United fans lauded defender Lisandro Martinez for his barge on Richarlison during Sunday’s draw with Tottenham. 

The Argentine returned from a four-month lay-off as the Red Devils were held to a 2-2 draw by Ange Postecoglou’s side at Old Trafford. 

Martinez came on to replace Jonny Evans shortly after the hour mark and wasted no time getting stuck into action. 

As Richarlison attempted to chase an outswinging corner which looked set to fall to Alejandro Garnacho on the edge of the box, Martinez ensured he didn’t progress by aggressively barging the Brazilian to the ground. 

United fans were left delighted with Martinez’s contribution as they took to social media to sing his praise.

One fan said: ‘I have missed this guy’. 

Another mirrored those views as he wrote wrote: ‘We’ve missed Martinez so much,’ while a third United fan added: ‘The Butcher is back’. 

Martinez will hope to inspire United to climb up the Premier League after they suffered heavily in his absence.

Erik ten Hag’s side had taken the lead against Tottenham after just three minutes before Richarlison equalised for the visitors in the 19th minute. 

Marcus Rashford restored United’s lead on the 40 minute mark but Rodrigo Bentancur’s goal seconds after the break ensured the points were shared.
