The Red Devils have been dealt a major blow with the news of Ashley Young being likely to miss out the rest of the season due to a hamstring injury he picked up towards the end of the first leg against Celta Vigo. Other than that, the Red Devils have no fresh injury concerns ahead of this game.
It shouldn’t be much of a big deal for this upcoming match since they still have a strong squad after resting their key players for their Arsenal fixture which they lost 2-0. A good rest should ensure all those players are back to play to the best of their abilities against the Spanish club.
In fact, Jose Mourinho did admit that he was aware of not having enough players to rotate since none of the players could’ve recovered so quickly. Speaking at the pre-match press conference, Mourinho said, “Since the last injuries, we know that nobody will recover on time, even to play the last match of the season, so the ones out will be out for the season,” he said. “But people are ready, fresh, with a big desire to play the game.”
