​De Gea hopeful over knee injury after Man Utd comeback

Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea should make a swift recovery from injury.

The Spanish shot-stopper suffered a blow to his knee during the first half against Southampton.

He was replaced at half time by Dean Henderson, and will have scans to determine the extent of the injury.

And manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes it will be a fast recovery.

"It is a knock just above the knee," said Solskjaer post-game.

"So we'll have a scan and check on him tomorrow. Hopefully he can be ready for Wednesday but can't promise anything now.

"Dean came on, very assured, had a couple of half-saves to make but he was tidy and safe with the ball at his feet."

De Gea released the following message on Instagram: "With a comeback like this one the knee pain is more bearable. Great work. I'll be back soon C'MON MY TEAM."
