‘This Could Be Ugly’ ‘We’ll Still Beat Them’ – United Fans On Twitter React As Injury Crisis Worsens Ahead Of Arsenal Match

Manchester United could have eight defenders missing through injury or suspension for tomorrow’s game against Arsenal.

Ashley Young’s booking against Southampton means he will be suspended for the encounter with seven other players struggling with knocks and longer-term injuries.

Some supporters were not particularly optimistic about United’s chances when they face the Gunners:

Others were more upbeat about the possibility of getting the three points:

Diogo Dalot looks almost certain to start at right back with Young suspended and Antonio Valencia’s fitness in doubt.

On the left-hand side, it seems Luke Shaw will be touch and go for the match, and with Matteo Darmian also carrying an injury, fans will be hoping the England international passes a fitness test.

The biggest question marks are in the centre of defence. Phil Jones was the last centre back that had remained fit but he also picked up an unspecified injury against the Saints. A three-man defence that includes Nemanja Matic and Scott McTominay may be on the cards again.

However, Eric Bailly (back) and Chris Smalling (foot) could well be fit with neither injury said to be serious, but we’ll just have to wait and see tomorrow evening.
