Fabio and Evra concerns for United

Next Story

Manchester United have two fresh concerns ahead of next Saturday's clash with Liverpool after Patrice Evra and Fabio Da Silva were both injured on international duty.

Evra picked up a thigh injury as France beat Albania 3-0, with the defender being replaced at half-time by Anthony Reveillere.

The first concern for the stand-in United skipper will be whether or not he will be fit for Les Bleus when they take on Bosnia in midweek.

Adil Rami and Yohan Cabaye also picked up injuries on a tough night for France on Friday.

"It is too soon to tell," said Laurent Blanc when asked about his crocked trio.

"We will assess the situation tomorrow and we will likely decide on Sunday if they can play."

Sir Alex Ferguson is likely to be keeping an anxious eye on Evra with the north-west derby at Anfield only seven days away.


Fabio, meanwhile, had his Brazil debut cut short by injury as the five-time World Cup winners defeated Costa Rica by a solitary goal.

However, the youngster's situation is likely to be less of a worry for United as he walked down the tunnel seemingly without serious trouble.

Elsewhere, Ashley Young and Luis Nani netted for England and Portugal respectively, while Wayne Rooney saw red.
