Manchester United suffered another loss against Danish football team FC Midtjylland in the Europa League.

The Red Devils’ injury woes got even worse when superstar Spanish goalkeeper David De Gea limped off the field during the team’s warm-up before the game.

Manchester United has suffered the worse of injuries this season as the 20-time Premier League champions top the injury table with 13 injuries. David De Gea adds to the list with what appears to be a knee injury.

The Spanish goalkeeper was performing a routine stop during the warm-up routine of Manchester United but had to be replaced by Sergio Romero after he was feeling uncomfortable with his knee.

De Gea was named in the initial starting squad submitted by the United manager Louis Van Gaal.

After the 2-1 defeat, Van Gaal blamed bad luck with injuries the reason behind the clubs poor season. He also went on to state “Law of Murphy”.

“When you have a list of injured players and a few minutes before the game we can add another player on the list then it is difficult to cope with such a list of injured players.” Van Gaal said, as reported by Sky Sports.
