Manchester United have been dealt a damaging blow ahead of their vital clash against Leicester City later today.
Defender Marcos Rojo and forward Jesse Lingard have picked up injuries and are set to miss the trip to King Power Stadium later today according to the Mirror.
Manchester United are already struggling with injuries to several key players like Jones, Herrera, Carrick, Shaw and Valencia.
Lingard and Shaw have been crucial for the Old Trafford outfit in the recent weeks and will be a big miss for Van Gaal away to Leicester City.
The high flying Foxes will be hoping to take advantage of Manchester United’s injury problems and extend their lead at the top of the table when the two sides meet later today.
Defender Paddy McNair could come in to replace Rojo for today’s game.
The Premier League giants have been depleted with injuries since the start of the season and it will be interesting to see if Louis Van Gaal decides to dip into the transfer market come January.
United are second in the table and are firmly in the title race. One or two intelligent additions could well prove to be decisive and take them closer to the title.
