▲ Christian Eriksen was injured in the 4th round of the FA Cup against Reading ▲ Andy Carroll, who was called a swindler from Liverpool, was substituted because he is dirty and does not like sports ▲ Caught on crutches after the game / The Ten Haag coach is also worried about an ankle injury
[골닷컴] Reporter Park Moon-soo = Bad news for Manchester United (hereafter referred to as Man United) came on the rise. This is due to the injury of Christian Eriksen, a key resource in midfield, coach Ten Hag.
Manchester United won 3-1 against Reading in Round 4 of the 2022/23 FA Cup held at Old Trafford on the morning of the 29th. Man Utd, who could not open even after beating in the first half, managed to advance to the next round thanks to Casemiro’s multi-goal and Fred’s wedge.
The victory was happy, but there were also some sorrows. That’s Eriksen. Eriksen got the ball in the 8th minute of the second half, and Reading striker Andy Carroll made an unlikely tackle on the player. Eriksen fell and complained of ankle pain. Afterwards, he was replaced with Fred in the 12th minute of the second half.
Unfortunately, in the 15th minute of the second half, Carroll committed an unknown foul on Malacia and received a caution. Five minutes later, Casemiro received another yellow card for a tackle unrelated to the ball. He was sent off after receiving two yellow cards within 5 minutes. However, he only received a verbal warning for Eriksen’s foul.
Eriksen was caught after the game. He complained of an injury to his ankle, and soon left the ground on crutches.
ten Haag also said about Eriksen’s injury: “It is difficult to talk about this in such a short time after the game. I have a problem with my ankle. I have to wait for the diagnosis. It will take 24 hours to know what will happen After that, I can’t say more. It seems that,” he said, anxiously.
The extent of the injury remains to be seen, but it is a fatal blow for United.
Eriksen, who wore a Manchester United uniform as a free agent this season, is in charge of Manchester United’s third line along with Casemiro. In fact, he is a key resource that is indispensable to the team.
Appeared in every game except Newcastle United. Excluding the substitute appearance against Tottenham, he started 18 games and recorded 1 goal and 7 assists.
Despite losing to Arsenal, United were also on the rise. Even if winning the league is unreasonable, reaching the top 4, which is the goal at the start of the season, is said to be enough. At an unexpected moment, he was in danger of losing midfield energy. At the moment, Man Utd have to start with the second leg of the League Cup semi-final against Nottingham Forest in midweek, a face-off with Palace, and two games in a row against Leeds United.
If Eriksen’s injury is prolonged, he will have to face the La Liga leaders without a central midfielder in the two consecutive matches against Barcelona in the UEFA Europa League play-offs.
