Callum McManaman: Wigan forward troubled by ankle injury

With no disciplinary action being taken against McManaman over his controversial tackle on Massadio Haidara in the 2-1 league win over Newcastle on March 17, he is eligible for selection this weekend.

But Martinez has emphasised the 21-year-old has been carrying an ankle problem, sustained in the 3-0 FA Cup win at Everton on March 9, and will need to be assessed over the next few days.

"Our major concern now is making sure he's fully fit and able to take to the field against Norwich.

"He hasn't trained with the rest of the team yet, and the next 48 hours will be crucial."

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
