Manchester United Football Club secured a huge result in the first leg of our tie against Celta Vigo. The Red Devils beat the Spanish team 1-0 on their home turf, in a fixture that looked supremely tough on paper. It was great to get that all-important away goal, and heading home with a lead is just a bonus.
However, it looks as though the result could have come at a cost. Ashley Young had to be substituted off in the second half with an injury, and now the Manchester Evening News say that he could be out for the remainder of the campaign.
The report says that the 31-year-old has suffered a hamstring injury, and they add that Manchester United will monitor his situation over the next 48 hours; but M.E.N Sport say that United fear the damage will keep him out for the rest of the month.
Honestly, could our injury luck get any worse? We’re already without Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Marcos Rojo and Luke Shaw for the season, and to lose another player is gutting.
Young is one of those guys that can play in multiple positions, and now, being without him really does pose a problem to Mourinho. The England international has been a great squad player this campaign, particularly when he has filled in at full-back.
