2017.04.21 | Man Utd-Anderlecht 2-1 (3-2)

LANDED BADLY ON HIS KNEE

Zlatan jumped and landed horribly on his knee during Manchester United's Europa League-quarterfinal against Anderlecht on Thursday.

 

It happened just before the 90 minutes were played and he was taken off.

 

No update about how serious the injury is has been published by Manchester United but the initial reports indicated it could be a serious injury.

 

"I want to wait but my feeling is not good, for both. I want to try to be optimistic but I'm not. I don't think they are easy injuries but I prefer to wait until all the tests are done tomorrow. After tomorrow then I can speak what I feel because I am a manager, not a doctor", José Mourinho said after the game.

 

Manchester United went on to win the game after Marcus Rashford scored the winning goal in extra time. Read Manchester United's game report here.

ZLATAN MISSED THE GAME DUE TO ILLNESS

NO ZLATAN

Except for Zlatan (ill), Rojo (injured) and Carrick (rested) Mourinho basically played his first team (Martial on the bench though). Many expected an "easy" game for United like against Reading but Hull, with newly appointed manager Marcos Silva, put up a good fight in the first half and it was 0-0 at halftime. In the 56th minute Mkhitaryan won a header duel in the box and the ball went to Mata, who tappied it in the open net. 1-0 to Manchester United.

 

FELLAINI GAVE UNITED A NICE POSITION FOR THE RETURN
