In the early hours of this morning, we covered a story from the BBC in which it was claimed that David de Gea was an injury doubt to take on Liverpool after suffering a thigh problem while playing for Spain.
Well according to the Daily Mirror, the United star is set to miss the clash against our old rivals through injury. However, there is some good news in the long-term, with the injury not thought to be serious…
The 28-year-old was set to undergo a scan in Manchester but there’s an early indication that the problem isn’t anything too serious.
However, the groin strain, rather than a muscle tear, could keep him out of action for the next few weeks as opposed to multiple months.
Thankfully, the goalkeeper position is one where United have been strong. Sergio Romero could well be the best back-up in world football while Dean Henderson and Joel Pereira are both immensely talented.
I’d like to think that the Argentine can keep things tight for around a month before De Gea returns fully fit and confident to get back to his brilliant best.
Anyway, for now it’s about De Gea resting up and not putting too much stress on the affected area.
Get well soon, Dave!
