WHAT THEY SAID: "I loved seeing Messi so fired up [against the Netherlands]!" Martinez told TyC. "Here we are killing each other all the time, [Weghorst] takes it well... I say to him 'good morning, silly', I say 'silly' to him, it's already like that and he takes it well, he's a good boy, we have a good vibe."

THE BIGGER PICTURE: Weghorst has started every match for United since joining in January proving that, despite not yet finding the target for his new club, he forms a vital part of Erik ten Hag's plans this campaign. Aside from a rest period following his successful World Cup exploits, Martinez has also been a stalwart in United's defence, as Ten Hag's men continue to be one of the country's most in-form teams.
