Injuries to Lee Cattermole, Jan Kirchhoff and Seb Larsson meant that David Moyes was forced into using John O’Shea as a makeshift midfielder at the Etihad on Saturday.
Following the news that Seb Larsson could miss up-to six months, after undergoing knee surgery to repair medial knee ligaments, Moyes revealed Cattermole may need to go under the knife to cure a long standing groin complaint: "It looks like Lee might need a hernia operation." No news yet on how long he’s likely to miss, but despite a solid performance from O’Shea, Moyes will be keen to ensure his switch was only a "one-off" with the possibility of bringing in reinforcements before the transfer window closes: "It [is] one area we are definitely going to have to look to strengthen in." Kirchhoff aggravated a hamstring injury during pre-season, but the German is believed to be close to a return and may be available for Sundays Wear-Tees derby. Aug 15 - 6:53 AM
