Premier League giants Manchester United’s star shot stopper David de Gea has sustained an injury while representing his national team Spain. He is now doubtful to be available for selection in the crucial Premier League tie against Liverpool on Sunday.
De Gea was forced to move out of the ground owing to his injury in the 60th minute of Spain’s Euro 2020 Qualifier match against Sweden which finished 1-1. David de Gea was then replaced by Kepa Arrizabalaga.
Spain manager Robert Moreno later revealed that David has sustained an abductor injury which was why he had to be taken off.
“De Gea was treated at the break and decided to continue. He has a puncture in the abductor,” Moreno said after the match.
The injury details were confirmed by Manchester United in a statement released by them after the match. It added that United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will give an update on David’s injury during the pre-match press conference.
If he is not available for selection for the Liverpool match, Argentine goalkeeper Sergio Romero might get his first league start of the season.
Manchester United are currently placed 12th in the Premier League table and would need to play out of their skins against an opponent that has won all their matches in the season so far.
