David De Gea Set For Scan On Knee Injury After Win Over Southampton

David De Gea Scan Knee Injury

David de Gea will go in for a scan on his knee today (Monday) ahead of Manchester United’s Champions League meeting with Paris Saint-Germain.

The Spanish goalkeeper was forced off at half-time during United’s 3-2 win at Southampton on Sunday after colliding with the post trying in vain to keep out James Ward-Prowse’s free-kick.

Dean Henderson, who replaced De Gea, may start the important Champions League clash at Old Trafford if the Spaniard is sidelined.

Red Devils’ manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said: ”[David has] a knock just above the knee, so hopefully he’ll be okay for Wednesday, but we don’t know.

”Let’s have a little scan or check tomorrow [Monday], but Dean came on and looked very assured.”

The Red Devils top Champions League Group H and will advance to the knockout stages if they avoid defeat against PSG.
