Injuries haven’t proved overly kind to the Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern this season, to say the very least.
Jose Mourinho’s squad has been torn apart amid a busy schedule all season, with the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Marcos Rojo amongst the most serious victims of the crisis.
So, it’s about time the Red Devils received some good news on the injury front at long last. Even if it’s to do with another team.
As revealed by Sky Sports, Crystal Palace defender Mamadou Sakho will miss the Eagles’ trip to Old Trafford at the end of the season as a result of his knee injury.

Influential to Sam Allardyce’s revival at Selhurst Park, the Frenchman’s absence will be a notable one in a game where both sides are still fighting for something.
Though both are remote possibilities, there’s a chance this game could decide whether or not either Crystal Palace are relegated or United finish in the top four.
Makes for an interesting encounter indeed.
