Louis van Gaal confirms injuries to Ashley Young and Anthony Martial

by Sam Peoples

Louis van Gaal has explained that Phil Jones and Ashley Young were taken off against Swansea City because they were injured.

Young was in fantastic form for Manchester United so fans are hoping that his withdrawal is more a precaution than anything.

As for Jones, it is the latest setback in a string of injuries which are continuing to make it impossible for him to put together a run of games in the team.

It might be harsh but I don’t think another injury to Jones will hurt us too much. He’s been so in-and-out of the team that another spell on the sidelines has become an all too familiar sight with Jones. At this rate, his career at United will be over before it ever truly got started.

Young being injured would be an altogether different scenario because as he showed against Swansea, he’s got something different which none of our other wide players can offer. His crosses were so dangerous and it came as no surprise to see Anthony Martial score from one.

We’ll no doubt get an injury update later in the week ahead of the Sheffield United game, so hopefully there is positive news on the pair of them.
