Jose Mourinho confirms big injury blow before Man United host Juventus

Manchester United take on Juventus at Old Trafford tomorrow, in what will be a spectacular occasion both on and off the field.

Not only is Cristiano Ronaldo returning to the Theatre of Dreams, the two clubs are also battling it out for the top spot in their Champions League group.

Before the game though, Jose Mourinho met the media and confirmed a big injury blow; with Alexis Sanchez set to miss the huge encounter.

The extent of the problem is unknown, as is the actual injury itself, so putting a time-frame on it at this point will be tough. All that we know is that the Chilean missed training before the game, so who knows how long he’ll be out for.

At this point I feel quite sorry for Sanchez. He had a brilliant pre-season, but since the serious stuff started, the ex-Arsenal man has been carrying little niggling injuries that seemingly are disrupting things.

There is an excellent player in there, we know that, we’ve seen it on occasion. His problem is consistency, he’s never been able to string a run of good games together, and now, it’s going to be even tougher for him to get starts; particularly with the way Anthony Martial is performing at the moment.
