Morgan Schneiderlin is unsure whether he will be fit to face Wolfsburg after limping off against West Ham United.
The French midfielder had to be substituted just before half-time and went straight down the tunnel, leading to plenty of concern over whether he had suffered a bad injury.
While it doesn’t sound like Schneiderlin’s injury is anything serious, the fact he’s injured at all is a real concern and we may now be without our best midfielder for Tuesday night’s crucial Champions League game away to Wolfsburg.
Morgan Schneiderlin just came out and said injury ok but then suggested 50-50 for Wolfsburg #mufc

Schneiderlin is now our most important central midfielder. Bastian Schweinsteiger and Michael Carrick are both good but the energy and tenacity which Schneiderlin adds is something that no other midfielder in our squad can offer to the same levels.
Wolfsburg away was always going to be a difficult trip on Tuesday night but it will be infinitely harder if United are without Schneiderlin.
