Antonio Valencia provides injury update on Instagram after West Brom clash
The 32-year-old defender was replaced by Marcos Rojo in the 66th minute at the Hawthorns and supporters were fearing worst ahead of a busy Christmas schedule.
Jose Mourinho hinted that Valencia could be set for a period on the sidelines in his post-match press conference, but Valencia looks set to be available for United’s trip to Leicester next weekend.
‘3 points at a hard stadium,’ the Ecuadorian full-back posted following the Red Devils’ victory.
‘Thanks for your support and concern. I am fine and our Manchester United won!’
Asked about the injury before Valencia’s post, Mourinho said: ‘It’s normal the players are getting into fatigue levels [in December]. They’re not machines.
‘Sometimes it happens. He knew he was not going to play the next game against Bristol [City] – he knew that.
‘But we have other players. Today, [Daley] Blind and [Matteo] Darmian were not even on the bench.
‘We have players, we trust players and we are humble people to cope with these difficulties.’
