David de Gea has joined Manchester United’s casualty list after getting injured in the warm-up ahead of their Europa League clash against Midtjylland.
The goalkeeper had been selected to start the away leg of the last-32 tie in Denmark but broke down during pre-match preparations.
Argentine Sergio Romero was hastily summoned from the substitute’s bench to replace De Gea in the starting X1.
There is no keeper on the bench as third-choice goalkeeper Sam Johnstone did not travel with the squad as he is injured as well.
So to confirm, our team is now as follows: Romero, Love, Smalling, McNair, Blind, Herrera, Carrick, Lingard, Mata, Memphis, Martial. #mufc

De Gea becomes remarkably the 14th United player unavailable for selection for this match as the club’s injury crisis takes on unprecedented levels.
