More concern for under pressure Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjær with Spain and United keeper David de Gea limping off from the Friends Arena pitch in Solna (Sweden) with a suspected groin injury in his right leg sustained during the Euro 2020 qualifier.

The incident happened just before the hour mark as the Toledo born stopper took a goal kick and seemed to aggravate a muscle in his right leg forcing Spain manager Roberto Moreno to replace the 28-year-old with Chelsea's Kepa.

United welcome runaway leaders to Liverpool to Old Trafford on Sunday with fans of the Manchester club losing patience with the Norwegian coach as United languish in 12th position in the Premier League table.
