Manchester United first-choice goalkeeper David De Gea and the Red Devils manager Ole Solskjaer will be unhappy with the turn out of event on Tuesday as the Spanish goalie picked up an injury ahead of Liverpool’s clash on the 20th of this month.
De Gea appeared to have injured his abductor muscle during his country’s 1-1 draw with Sweden and he could be out of the highly-anticipated encounter between the two most successful Premier League clubs.
The goalkeeper couldn’t complete yesterday’s Euro 2020 qualifying clash as he was replaced by young Chelsea goalie Kepa Arrizabalaga in the 60th minute of the encounter.
Speaking to reporters after the game, Spain head coach Moreno revealed that the 28-year-old wanted to end the game but he couldn’t cope with the injury, hence he was replaced in the second half.
“He had pain in his abductor muscle and he received treatment at half-time, but wanted to keep playing. He gave us his word but in the end, he couldn’t continue.” he said.
This means that Argentinian international Sergio Romero — who has been a second choice goalkeeper since he joined the club in 2014 –could be in goal against the Reds if De Gea fails to recover in time for the game.
