Manchester United star David de Gea may have a shot at featuring vs PSG as his injury has not been deemed as serious just yet.
The Spanish goalkeeper couldn’t keep a clean-sheet in the dramatic 3-2 win over Southampton and ended up having to be substituted at the break.
De Gea crashed into the post while attempting to make a save in the first half and he seemed to shake it off initially before eventually succumbing to the injury.
Dean Henderson came on to make his Premier League debut for United and made a few smart stops to help keep United in the game.
Edinson Cavani‘s introduction at half-time inspired a sensational comeback win that De Gea could unfortunately only watch from the stands.
Manchester United‘s David De Gea to undergo second day of tests tomorrow on knee injury sustained v Southampton. Still causing pain but goalkeeper confident on Monday night not a serious or long term issue. Not completely out of PSG but will do well to make it. #mufc #psg

Given how the first round of tests didn’t find anything conclusive then the hope is it means it can’t be anything serious.
Even if the second round finds something, it should be something minor that hopefully won’t keep him out for long.
It’s likely Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would want to select De Gea for the clash vs PSG but Henderson has played well whenever he’s been handed an opportunity so it isn’t a terrible downgrade at all.
