Mourinho dealt headache as star midfielder potentially out for remainder of season

 

       

Whilst Manchester United still sit four points adrift of rivals Liverpool in the Champions League spots, if the Reds trip up against Everton this afternoon, Mou’s men will have a giant three games in hand over their nearest and dearest rivals. Whilst it’s hardly been a stellar season for the red side of Manchester, a late catch and grab over the Merseysiders will surely make for a sweet ending to the season.

Saying that, the Red Devil’s have been dealt a rotten piece of luck in the injury department.

   
   

Having forced his way into the first team with some stellar displays, Juan Mata’s season looks to have come to a bitter an end following reports of a returning groin injury.

The Spain international is set to go under the knife in an attempt to rescue his season, however, various sources doubt that the former Chelsea midfielder will be able to make a full recovery in order to bolster an already depleted first team.

Current fellow injury victims include Chris Smalling, Phil Jones, Paul Pogba and Wayne Rooney, whilst fellow name stays Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Ander Herrera are suspended for Saturday’s clash with West Brom as Tony Pulis looks to put a dent in United’s Champions League ambitions.

Deemed a certainty to be sold during the summers of Mourinho’s arrival, Mata has gone on to score an impressive 10 goals and contribute 6 assists this season.
