However, recent tests have been encouraging as Van Gaal said, “It’s not so serious.” United were also without Wayne Rooney and Angel Di Maria against Stoke City as they find themselves hit worst by injuries this season. Blind could however return by December as Van Gaal claimed, “The injury is not so serious but he will not be back next week – by Christmas, maybe. I think by the end of December we can see more players coming back and we will have light at the end of the tunnel.”

Blind’s return to the team is very important for United. The defensive midfielder is key for shielding the back four and has an incredible passing range. This would help in Marouane Fellaini in a more free role joining attacks up front with the more creative players rather than be focused on tracking back and breaking opposition attacks.
