DEVASTATING NEWS: “it has been really hard for me now he’s injured again. I find it hard to win without him in the team; he is one of the main reasons the team is on high performance; he brings stability and a winning mentality to the team.” This is very devastating news. The most valuable player for Manchester United is sidelined with a long-term injury, adding him to the list of injured players. The left-back was replaced by Lindelof at halftime of the Sunday evening match against Aston villa because of a hamstring problem. Without this player, Manchester United is in serious trouble. “He’s out for a long time,” stated erik ten Hag following a player hamstring injury.


United secured a crucial three points with goals from Rasmus Hojlund and Scott McTominay, sandwiched by a Douglas Luiz equalizer.

This victory, their fifth in six games, brings them within six points of Tottenham in fourth place, igniting hopes of a surprising push for Champions League qualification.

However, the match wasn’t without its challenges. Manager Ten Hag made a surprising substitution at halftime, replacing Luke Shaw with Victor Lindelof at left-back, a decision deemed “devastating” by Gary Neville. The change disrupted United’s defensive structure, particularly against Villa’s relentless attacks down the right flank.

Ten Hag later clarified that Shaw’s substitution was precautionary due to complaints of discomfort, emphasizing the need to avoid risking further injury. He acknowledged the disadvantage of losing Shaw, highlighting his preference for left-footed players in specific positions.

In the 73rd minute, Marcus Rashford was replaced by McTominay, a move questioned considering Rashford’s strong performance. However, McTominay justified the decision by scoring the late winning goal, attributing his success to his fitness and dedication to the team’s cause.

McTominay praised Diogo Dalot’s assist for his goal and emphasized the team’s collective effort in creating scoring opportunities, expressing gratitude for their contributions.
