The result aside, Thursday night was a sad one for Man Utd fans as Zlatan Ibrahimovic hobbled off the pitch in agony after hyperextending his knee against Anderlecht.

​News has since been confirmed that the Swedish striker is likely to miss as many as eight or nine months with the injury, which could even spell the end of his United career.

However, despite the severity of the damage Luke Shaw provided an amazing update shortly after the game, claiming that the 28-goal forward was actually walking around the changing room and looked 'fine'.

"He's fine. He was walking around in the changing room," Shaw said when quizzed on his teammate's health, via the  Independent .


How? Just how? 

We all know that the United man is something of a superhuman, and seems to only be getting better as an athlete with age, but to somehow still be walking around with a seriously injured knee - it almost defies the human anatomy.

Marcos Rojo was also injured in the match against the Belgian side with fears that he could also miss the remainder of the campaign.

With Phil Jones and Chris Smalling already out until May, Jose Mourinho is going to have to turn to Daley Blind to partner Eric Bailly.

As for Ibrahimovic's injury, the Portuguese manager is lucky to have the in-form Marcus Rashford to fill his boots with Anthony Martial and Wayne Rooney in reserve.

United now face the toughest period of their season with games coming thick and fast in both Premier League and Europe. Their squad has been left decimated by injury but after positive results against Chelsea and Anderlecht, the momentum in the squad could carry the Red Devils over the line.
