Bad news for Juan Mata
Every Monday Juan Mata posts an update on his blog.
Today the Spanish midfielder has updated fans that he’s set to miss both the PSG and Arsenal games.
Mata was hurt in Man United’s recent 0-0 draw with Liverpool.
Today he’s posted the following update:
This week, we have two more games… which will probably go by slowly for me again, although I will be supporting the team and carrying on with my recovery process. I’m feeling good about it, every day I’m a bit better and I am working to be back as soon as possible.
PSG and Arsenal are both top opponents to be facing this week. The game in Paris is particularly tough due to the first leg, but we are United and we never surrender. We have to believe that it is possible. Later, we will visit the Emirates again in a vital game as we fight for a Champions League place.
Man United may have 10 players missing for the PSG game.
Paul Pogba is out of the match through suspension. He was sent off in the first leg.
Others, including Ander Herrera, Nemanja Matic, Alexis Sanchez and Jesse Lingard are likely to miss the Champions League tie through injury.
