This comes after the club’s issues at the position, in terms of performance and injuries, this season.
Lisandro Martinez has been out of action since September with a foot injury, he has missed 12 matches at the time of writing.
Additionally, there have been documented issues between Raphael Varane and Erik ten Hag recently. And now with fresh news of Evans being ruled out, ten Hag will likely be forced into starting the French international alongside Harry Maguire at the weekend.
