Manchester United will await tests on winger Angel Di Maria to see if he has a chance of facing Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday after the Argentine suffered a pelvic injury in training.
Record signing Di Maria was injured on Wednesday and ruled out of Friday’s 3-1 home victory over Newcastle United in the Premier League.
He had only just returned from a hamstring injury and played in the 1-1 draw against Aston Villa last week.
“In the last training session he (Di Maria) stepped out of the warm up,” manager Louis van Gaal said.
“It was a little bit amazing because he did everything very well but ... now we have to wait and see for the analysis.
“The pelvis is not in a right relationship with his leg. I don’t think (it’s serious), but I am not a doctor.”
“All the injuries are coming back,” Van Gaal said.
“It is a little bit late for us because now we have to play a lot of games within one week but they are coming back and, within two weeks, I think a lot of players will be back.
“Januzaj is ill. A virus has approached a lot of players but for him it was too much. Also Fellaini ... I think it is the Belgium virus!
“Will he be ready for Spurs? No, he is ill.”
