Manchester United have been dealt another cruel injury blow, following Ashley Young’s ‘severe’ injury that is set to keep him out for some time. Now Louis van Gaal has confirmed that both Bastian Schweinsteiger and Phil Jones will miss the game against Southampton tomorrow.
Jones has been missing for the last few games, and was recently spotted in the away end with the Manchester United fans against Liverpool last weekend, probably meaning that he hasn’t been back involved in training recently.
Bastian Schweinsteiger picked up a nasty looking knee injury just a couple of weeks ago, but he isn’t expected to be out for all that long. The sooner we have him back, the better.
It means that we’ll certainly see Morgan Schneiderlin continue in the middle of the park, either alongside Michael Carrick who looks set to return, or the much maligned Marouane Fellaini.
