Louis van Gaal has revealed that David de Gea suffered a knee injury in the warm-up before Manchester United’s defeat to FC Midtylland.

De Gea was originally a member of the starting line-up in Denmark for United’s Europa League round of 32 first-leg tie, but the keeper appeared to injure himself in the pre-match warm-up.

Sergio Romero was drafted in to replace the Spaniard as a result after De Gea was examined by the club’s physios, and was not passed fit to start.

United proceeded to lose 2-1 to Midtylland, and must now win at Old Trafford next Thursday to progress.

Speaking after the game, Van Gaal discussed his keeper’s injury with BT Sport.

“David de Gea has a knee problem so we have to wait and see. We will investigate that with a scan,” Van Gaal said.
