Manchester United’s name is safely in the hat for the fourth round of the Carabao Cup thanks to a demolition job at home to Burton Albion. During the match, there were a couple of injury concerns.
Marcus Rashford was subbed off with a problem, before heading straight down the tunnel, and Anthony Martial was forced to complete the 90 minutes on what looked like a sore knee after all of our subs had been used.
However, after the game, Jose Mourinho has eased the injury fears whilst speaking to reporters. The BBC’s Simon Stone quotes the United boss as saying that there are ‘no injuries’ which is obviously a huge plus.
Jose: "No injuries."

In matches like these, you’re always wary about injury problems. That’s why the Premier League bosses tend to rotate a lot because, quite frankly, their priorities lie elsewhere.
It is great to hear that we’ve come through without any major problems though, and now attentions will turn to picking up three points away at Southampton at the weekend. Thankfully, a lot of our regular starters were allowed some rest as they sat out the Burton match, and they should be fit, firing and ready to play come 15:00 BST Saturday.
