Shortly after providing the cross for Matt Smith to open the scoring in Sunday's famous 3-2 triumph, M'Changama sustained a knee injury from a challenge that earned Reds winger Raheem Sterling a booking.

Although scans showed no cartilage or cruciate ligament damage for the 22-year-old left-sided midfielder, he has suffered a snapped medial ligament.

"There's a good chance it could be the season, unfortunately," Latics boss Paul Dickov confirmed.

"He's snapped his medial ligament, which is unfortunate because the kid was coming into a bit of form as well."

Two-goal hero Smith picked up a shoulder injury during the closing stages, while strike partner Robbie Simpson also failed to complete the 90 minutes due to a hamstring tear.

Dickov added: "We're light on numbers anyway and it looks as if Robbie and Matt are going a few weeks as well.

"Robbie's got a slight tear on his hamstring, Matt's torn some cartilage in his shoulder."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
