Jordan Pickford could line up against Southampton this weekend after Vito Mannone was rushed to hospital for further tests following a training ground injury.
Concerns at present, are that Mannone may have suffered a fractured elbow, although there has been no official update since David Moyes spoke to the written press ahead of tonights' League Cup tie against Burnley. "Unfortunately, this morning, we’ve taken another injury with Vito on his elbow," he said. "We’re just about to take him to hospital to get it checked. It could be serious and we’re a little bit worried about it, but I couldn’t tell you how good or bad it is yet." With only two Premier League starts, which includes a 4-1 loss at White Hart Lane, Moyes is not worried about Pickford being thrown in at the deep end: "I saw Jordan play for Preston last season quite a bit and I was impressed by how he was."
