Out against Tottenham? Bruno Fernandes sparks injury fear with latest social media post

The midfielder could well be missing for their trip to north London


Bruno Fernandes has sparked injury concern among Manchester United and fantasy Premier League players alike, posting a photo on social media that appears to show him on crutches and in a foot brace.

The midfielder returned to action on Sunday to help his side squeak through their FA Cup semi-final tie with Brighton on penalties, though he was taken off in extra time and did not get to take a spot kick.

He had previously been sidelined through suspension, forced to watch from home as his side capitulated against Sevilla to crash out of the Europa League at the last 8 stage.

And if recent photos are anything to go by, he could be forced to watch on once more. This comes after his wife shared a photo on Instagram of the 28-year-old which showed the United man in a protective boot and with crutches to one side, with his right foot raised in a bid to speed up the healing process.

Manchester United face a trip to fellow top-4 hopefuls Tottenham on Thursday evening, knowing that three points against the north Londoners would all but secure their spot in the top 4, and Champions League football back at Old Trafford.

Currently six points clear of the Lilywhites, they would extend that to nine with a win in north London, while also having two games in hand on their rivals.

However, they may have to do so with a weakened side, with Fernandes potentially joining defensive duo Lisandro Martinez and Raphael Varane on the injury table, while Scott McTominay is also sidelined and Marcus Rashford, though back to match fitness, looks a shell of his pre-injury self.
