The Nigerian international started the match and finished the first half unscathed. However, six minutes into the second half, Iwobi was taken off the pitch on a stretcher after damaging his ankle following a robust challenge from United’s left-back Tyrell Malacia.

The injury looked bad, as the Nigerian appeared to have twisted his ankle following Malacia’s tackle. Iwobi also appeared to know the extent of the damage after covering his eyes with his shirt as he was taken off the pitch.

Following the game, it was confirmed that Iwobi suffered an ankle ligament injury, with the Nigerian leaving Old Trafford on crutches.
