WHAT OCCURED? The tricky winger came on in the second half of United’s 0-0 draw with Southampton at Old Trafford but was replaced in added time after collapsing under a tackle by Kyle Walker-Peters. He limped slowly down the sideline before being photographed with crutches and a protective boot on his right foot by journalist Mark Critchley.
THE BIGGER PICTURE: United manager Erik ten Hag did not appear to be concerned about the injury. In a post-game press conference, he explained why he took the Argentine wonderkid off: “He was limping a bit after the tackle, so in the end they bring on another striker, we were already down to 10 men.”
