Duo Looking Set To Miss QPR Clash

Having a fully fit squad to choose from was never going to last long was it? After the victory last night, Sir Alex confirmed that Rooney was still ‘in bed’ due to a sinus infection and Phil Jones has an injured ankle. Both are major doubts to face QPR in the league this weekend, but Jones was probably going to miss out anyway.

Sir Alex told MUTV: “We will have to assess it in the morning,” He continued. “It’s an ankle injury so I would imagine he would not be ready for Saturday [away to QPR]. We will see what he is like after that.”

At the time it looked like a nasty one, his ankle seemed to twist one way and then the other. He also left the stadium with his foot in a protective boot suggesting it is quite a serious injury, so it wouldn’t surprise me if he faces another lengthy spell on the sidelines. We’ll just have to wait and see.
