The 28-year-old Manchester United shot stopper, David De Gea appeared to have hurt his thigh during his country’s Euro 2020 qualifier in Sweden. He was replaced by Chelsea’s Kepa Arrizabalaga after an hour in Stockholm with his side trailing 1-0.
De Gea grabbed his thigh after clearing a backpass from his own player. He sat on the ground in his six-yard box before making his way off the pitch alongside the physios.
Though the length of his injury is not yet known, optimistically, it wouldn’t be a lengthy one as the injury came in an inobnoxious way.
United are 12th in the Premier League having not won in their past three top-flight games. They will face a Liverpool side aiming for an 18th consecutive Premier League win, a total that would equal the record held by Manchester City.
With De Gea in doubt for the Liverpool match this weekend, Argentine Sergio Romero – who has featured in the Europa League and Carabao Cup this season – is likely to replace him.
