Blind Injury Concern for Man Utd Ahead of Arsenal

Manchester United will assess Daley Blind’s knee on Monday after the midfielder was substituted injured while playing for the Netherlands.

The 24-year-old lasted for only 20 minutes in his country’s 6-0 victory over Latvia in an Euro 2016 qualifier on Sunday.

Netherlands coach Guus Hiddink said: “It doesn’t look good. I think it’s his medial ligament. It could be a strain, but it could also be a tear.”

Blind said on Instagram: I’m proud of my 25 games for the Dutch national team, but I’m so gutted with my injury… I’ll stay positive and will come back stronger! Nevertheless a great win 6-0.”

United will face Arsenal on Saturday and Blind, who has made eight appearances for the Old Trafford club since his £13.8m transfer from Ajax last summer, is a major injury concern.

He is not the only Man United player to be injured during the international break, as goalkeeper David De Gea dislocated a finger during training session with Spain on Friday and Michael Carrick withdrew from England squad with a “minor” groin injury.
