David de Gea gave Manchester United fresh injury scare ahead of their big clash against English Premier League (EPL) leaders Liverpool on October 20, 2019 (Sunday). The 28-year-old United No 1 limped off in Spain’s 1-1 draw against Sweden in the Euro 2020 Qualifiers. De Gea was forced off at the hour mark after suffering – what apparently seemed to be an abductor pain – a muscle pull and although those at Old Trafford continued to anxiously wait to discover the extent of De Gea’s injury, United fans on social media were panicked on seeing their defensive wall almost ruled out ahead of such an important fixture. Mohamed Salah Put on Special Training Ahead of Manchester United vs Liverpool, EPL 2019-20.
De Gea, who hasn’t missed a league game for the Red Devils since May 2018, has been central to United’s transition period and recently penned a four-year deal with the EPL club. The 28-year-olds shot-stopper, who started ahead of the first choice Kepa Arrizabalaga, was superb throughout his stay in the ground and pulled out a couple of terrific saves before Marcus Berg nodded home the opener home for Sweden in the 51st minute. Shortly after that, De Gea appeared to have suffered muscle pull when clearing a backpass. He immediately sat on the pitch before being replaced by Kepa. Spain eventually drew the game with substitute Rodrigo scoring in stoppage time to book the two-time champion’s Euro 2020 berth.

"He had pain in the abductor but he received treatment at halftime and wanted to keep playing," Spain manager Robert Moreno said after the match. "He gave us his word, but in the end, he couldn't continue." United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, however, will be hoping that the injury to his No 1 is not serious especially with his team plagued by several injuries just two months into this season.
