Manchester United fans are in disbelief after goalkeeper David de Gea suffered a muscle injury in Spain’s 1-1 draw against Sweden last night with the player now a doubt for Sunday according to the BBC.
The ‘keeper went off in the 60th minute after suffering what appeared to be a hamstring injury and is a doubt for the clash at home to table-toppers Liverpool.
De Gea is one of a number of players doubtful for the game against Jurgen Klopp’s men. Although The Mirror suggests Paul Pogba, Luke Shaw and Aaron Wan-Bissaka ‘look likely to play’, they could still be doubtful for the game as nothing has been confirmed by the club.
The north-west club is in a terrible run of form in the Premier League this season, having won just one of their last seven games in the top-flight (via WhoScored).
It seems the news surrounding the United ‘keeper has dampened the mood for fans as they took to Twitter to bemoan his injury.
Here is a selection of tweets from the Old Trafford faithful:

It’s actually a joke the number of muscular injuries that we’ve had this season already. There’s something seriously wrong.
