Positive News For Man Utd As David De Gea's Injury Is Not As Bad As First Feared

Positive News For Man Utd As David De Gea's Injury Is Not As Bad As First Feared
By Mikey Traynor

Murphy's Law would have had Spanish goalkeeper out injured for 6-8 weeks, like the rumours that began circulating late on Thursday night suggested, but finally some positive news has emerged for fans of Manchester United.

James Ducker of The Times is reporting that David De Gea's injury is not serious, and he could be in contention to play against FC Midtjylland in the return leg on Thursday, and if not then Arsenal on the following weekend should be the game in which he again appears in goal for Manchester United.

The exact nature of the injury has not yet been disclosed, although a reputable Manchester United fan account on twitter is claiming that 'displacement of the meniscus' is what troubled De Gea, which would cause swelling and pain initially but would heal quickly:

It's rare that injuries in the warm-up are clearly caught by the TV camera, but that was the case last night as De Gea immediately looked upset following an awkward movement of his left leg:

Although De Gea was not missed despite the loss, as Sergio Romero pulled off a series of extremely impressive saves, the best of which was this stunner:

However, there is no question as to which keeper the United fans would prefer, so the news that De Gea may only miss a trip to Shrewsbury Town will be very welcome news.
