Manchester United Football Club are still unbeaten in domestic fixtures under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer; although yesterday’s 0-0 draw with Liverpool did come at a cost.
Injuries decimated the Red Devils. During the game, three substitutes were forced in the first 45 minutes. Marcus Rashford limped on, probably doing further damage in the process.
Another who suffered an injury was Ander Herrera. Shortly after the game, the Basque-born midfielder took to Twitter to admit how frustrated he was as he had to leave the field in such an important fixutre.
It really is tough. Injuries killed the momentum and flow of the fixture, for both sides. Herrera’s absence, along with losing Jesse Lingard, Juan Mata, Rashford and Nemanja Matic before kick-off, is huge.
With some tough games coming up, we have to hope that these problems aren’t as serious as they look.
We’re yet to hear anything concrete from Solskjaer himself but in the build-up to Wednesday’s game against Crystal Palace, let’s hope the Baby Faced Assassin can provide us with a positive update over the next 24 hours.
I guess the good news is that both Scott McTominay and Andreas Pereira well and truly stepped up in Herrera’s absence, and those two seemingly do have a future at Old Trafford.
