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."

put Ince in my fantasy football team, so it's no surprise at all really. I do that to players. Also responsible for De Jong and Upson being injured. Think I'll transfer in Di Maria just to ruin United....
