Alejandro Garnacho hobbled out of Old Trafford this evening on crutches.
The Manchester United youngster came on as a substitute in the second half against Southampton in Sunday’s scoreless draw.
Sadly for the youngster, his time on the pitch was cut short due to an injury. He went down after a well-timed tackle inside the box and received attention for a couple of minutes before playing on.
However, Ten Hag decided to withdraw Garnacho towards the end, bringing on Fred for the young Argentina star.

The reporter claims Garnacho was also wearing a protective shell on his right foot.
Chance for Facundo Pellistri
This should present more opportunities for Facundo Pellistri, who came off the bench this afternoon.
The Uruguayan should should be waiting on the wings for his next chance to prove himself. It might come in the Europa League on Thursday night.
Pellistri deserves it after his cameo against Real Betis last week.
