Did Manchester United’s Ander Herrera injure rib in clash with ref Lee Mason? [Pictures]

Manchester United’s Spanish midfielder Ander Herrera picked up a mystery rib injury against West Ham last Saturday, for which no clear explanation has been given.

Immediately after brushing against the ref, Herrera clutched his side in pain, and was subbed off in the next break in play.
