The news is worse than we initially imagined.
David de Gea doesn’t just face missing Manchester United’s clash against Liverpool on Sunday, but the goalkeeper could be out for two months after picking up an injury whilst playing in Spain’s 1-1 draw with Sweden.
The Spanish shot-stopper has not exactly been at his best lately, but his form has picked up a little and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will see this as a major blow.
But it could be a lot worse if Ole didn’t have a second choice keeper like Argentina international Sergio Romero.

According to The Sun, De Gea is set for a lengthy spell on the sidelines with United bosses concerned that he could miss up to two months of action.
The report explains that he faces two months out — which is something United could do without at the moment.
De Gea appears to be sustained a muscle injury. The 28-year-old was under no pressure when he fell to the floor after clearing a back pass on the hour mark.
The former Atletico Madrid shot-stopper got back to his feet by himself but limped off to be replaced by Chelsea’s Kepa Arrizabalaga.
If Ole fears for his future, this news won’t make him sleep any easier.
