Manchester United has received an injury blow ahead of the boxing days match against Burnley FC with one of Manchester United’s key player getting injured.
Manchester United has drawn 2-2 yesterday, Saturday, against Leicester City away from home at King Power Stadium where Leicester City scored the equalizer in the last seconds of the injury time, to get away two valuable points from Manchester United.
It wasn’t the perfect night for the Red Devils where one of their key defenders this season, Chris Smalling, is getting injured and will miss Burnley FC match on Tuesday in the Premier League boxing day after receiving a knock in the last minutes of the draw against Leicester City.
The 28 years old English central defender, Chris Smalling, has picked up an injury before the match ends and collapsed on the pitch, but then he picked himself up and continued the match after Jose Mourinho, Manchester United’s manager, has made all the three allowed substitutes in the match, and Chris Smalling leaving the pitch means Manchester United will be playing with 10 men against Leicester City who is playing with 10 men as well due to a red card.
Knowing that Chris Smalling was heavily criticized on Twitter and social media for allowed Maguire, Leiscter City’s player, to score the equalizer instead of stopping him. In addition, Jose Mourinho was criticised as well for letting Chris Smalling play with an injury.
This injury will leave Manchester United without one of their key defenders this season while Eric Bailly is out injured for at least three months.
