Updates from Tuesday, April 8
Ashley Young took part in training ahead of Manchester United's Champions League quarter-final second leg against Bayern Munich.
Rob Dawson of Manchester Evening News reported:
Manchester United winger Ashley Young was forced to leave the club's match against Newcastle United after less than 20 minutes due to a hand injury. He was replaced in the lineup by 19-year-old rising star Adnan Januzaj.
The Premier League passed along word of the switch, which came with the score still deadlocked at zero:
BBC Sport noted the injury occurred as he attempted to brace himself while falling to the ground:
Newcastle provided further details about the incident that came as a result of a key Massadio Haidara tackle:
After Saturday's match, David Moyes confirmed that the English winger had suffered a serious injury:
Young was making his 18th Premier League appearance of the campaign for United. He's struggled to make a consistent impact moving forward in those matches with just two goals and one assist. The veteran has failed to find the score sheet in eight Champions League games.
Januzaj will fill the role for the rest of the Newcastle match and probably for as long as Young is out should he need more time to recover beyond today. The talented teenager has flashed serious potential, but consistency remains an issue as gains experience.
United are still trying to make a push toward a European berth for next season. They are still active in this season's Champions League with a road clash against reigning champions Bayern Munich looming next week.
Further information about the extent of Young's injury will provided as it becomes available.
