Manchester United injury blow ahead of Liverpool, Arsenal and Chelsea fixtures

Manchester United injury blow ahead of Liverpool, Arsenal and Chelsea fixtures; player set to miss all three games.

Fred, a Manchester United midfielder, is expected to miss up to three games in the coming week due to injury.

After struggling to fit into the team before to Ralf Rangnick’s debut as interim manager, the 29-year-old has stepped up to the plate.

According to The Telegraph, the Brazilian’s three-game absence might mean he misses matches against Liverpool, Arsenal, and Chelsea.

It comes at a bad moment for the Red Devils, who are now in fifth place and hoping to make the top four.

A further blow to Rangnick is the fact that the match against the Blues has been moved forward, with the original fixture taking place in May, but having to be changed due to their FA Cup final that weekend.

Fred’s Manchester United injury blow

Fred has made 25 Premier League appearances this season, fitting well with the more intense pressing style their current manager prefers. 

He has scored four goals and assisted five this season.

The injury comes at a critical time in their top four push. While they seemed cut adrift one week ago, Arsenal’s poor form coupled with Tottenham’s loss to Brighton has opened another opportunity for United.

Man United are in fifth, three points behind Tottenham in fourth and level with the Gunners in sixth. 

It only adds emphasis to how important their clash is at the weekend, with much-needed momentum surrounding the other games before and after it.

Just how important Fred’s injury could be to the top four race remains to be seen, but it’s not ideal for the side in their hopes of doing so.
