The victory against Anderlecht, a win that saw Manchester United qualify for the semi-final stages of the Europa League, thereby moving closer to Champions League qualification came at a price.

With Chris Smalling, Phil Jones and Juan Mata all currently side-lined through injury, two more of Manchester United`s first-team squad have joined them in the treatment room.

The first half saw Marcos Rojo pick up an injury that forced him out of the action whilst, late in the second half, Manchester United`s top-scorer, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, picked up what looked to be a serious knee injury.

The Swedish striker looked to be in some pain as he received treatment and there are fears that he could be side-lined for the remainder of the season which could mean, with his contract situation unsorted, Ibrahimovic could have played his last game for Manchester United.

Interviewed after the game, Jose Mourinho was pretty down-beat about the injury situation, remarking to the media,

“My feelings are not good about these injuries. I think its bad news.

“I know I should try to be optimistic but I am not. I am fairly negative although I will wait for the reports tomorrow. I am tired and my players are more tired than me.”


Let`s keep those fingers crossed that the situation looked worse than it actually was for Zlatan and Marcos.
