Manchester United sweating on fitness of defender after leaving on a stretcher

Manchester United secured a slender 1-0 victory away at Norwich City this afternoon, which was their first league victory outside of Manchester since early in January. Louis van Gaal’s men kept their top four hopes alive, but suffered another injury blow.

Matteo Darmian had to be stretchered off the field after suffering what looked like an achilles injury in the first half, and it looked like a nasty one.

You could physically see the pain our Italian right-back was in when he suffered the blow, and that has led to a real fitness concern for Darmian, particularly with the FA Cup final and the European Championships looming.

The 26-year old made a superb start to life at Old Trafford earlier on in the season, but since the turn of the year he has looked completely bereft of confidence. Now this injury problem certainly won’t help boost his morale, but hopefully it isn’t as serious as first thought and we’ll see him on the pitch again this season.
