Ahead of the clash there were doubts over 12 first team players, although Angel di Maria, Michael Carrick, Ashley Young, Luke Shaw, and David de Gea were all eventually passed fit to play.

Shaw was forced off after just 15 minutes however, with Young continuing at left wing-back.

The English full-back joins Daley Blind, Marcos Rojo, Rafael, Phil Jones, Jonny Evans, Radamel Falcao, and Jesse Lingard on the treatment table and Louis van Gaal’s defensive worries are growing by the day.

A number of players are expected back in December, but the Dutch manager will surely be looking at bringing reinforcements into the club this January.
