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."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
