Mourinho confirms injury for Man Utd youngster Fosu-Mensah

Manchester United have been hit with yet another injury following tonight's derby with Manchester City.

Manager Jose Mourinho has confirmed that young Dutch defender Timothy Fosu-Mensah was hurt when landing awkwardly in the final moments of the 0-0 draw at the Etihad Stadium.

Fosu-Mensah had replaced Henrikh Mkhitaryan in the 86th minute after Marouane Fellaini has been sent off for head-butting Sergio Aguero.

"We will fight until the end – today we lost two more players – Timothy Fosu-Mensah had an important injury in the last action of the game and Fellani is suspended," Mourinho told BBC Sport.

"We are going down in terms of the number of players.

"It is very difficult for us but the character is amazing and I'm very proud of the boys."
