Jonny Evans returned to the Manchester United first team squad for the trip to St Marys’ on Monday and got his chance a lot sooner than expected following more than two months on the sidelines because of an ankle injury.
Having suffered several muscular problems already this term – groin & thigh – plus a sending-off Chris Smalling was enjoying his foray back into the starting eleven following his goal and clean sheet in game week 13. However barely ten minutes in against Southampton and the defender pulled up with a suspected groin tear which is likely to rule him out over the Christmas period. The return of Jonny Evans has proved timely while Rafael is also approaching full fitness – but Paddy McNair may need to wait a little longer before establishing himself in the first team after he was withdrawn before half-time - lacking confidence - following a number of basic errors.
