Sports Man Utd in defensive CRISIS with Jonny Evans set for SCAN on leg injury

"I don't know how bad it is. We have to wait and see. He's on crutches, we will have to have a scan on Monday."I think [Luke] Shaw shall be fit enough to play and [Marcos] Rojo and [Chris] Smalling can play.

United flopped to a stunning 5-3 defeat to Leicester yesterday, letting a 3-1 lead slip in dramatic fashion.

Van Gaal is already short of cover at the back despite spending over £150million on new signings this summer.

And with Evans limping off after half an hour at the King Power Stadium and later seen on crutches, it is reaching crisis point for the Dutchman.

The 26-year-old is United's most experienced defender, with Van Gaal already missing Phil Jones.

But the 63-year-old believes his side can cope without Evans, who will have a scan on his leg today.

"He got a kick," Van Gaal said. "I don't know how bad it is. We have to wait and see. He's on crutches, we will have to have a scan on Monday.

"I think [Luke] Shaw shall be fit enough to play and [Marcos] Rojo and [Chris] Smalling can play. We can manage."

Sports Luke Shaw will become the world's BEST left-back at Man Utd - Jonny Evans

The manager knows him well and he's come through the Ajax youth system, which is something the manager had a lot of input into so he'll understand the manager's way of playing really well.".

Shaw is yet to feature for United in the Premier League this season following his move from Southampton over the summer.

But Evans saw enough in pre-season to convince him that the 19-year-old's £30m price tag will prove excellent value.

He told United Review: "I had the chance to work with Luke in pre-season and there is no doubt he is going to be the best left-back in the world."

Evans is also pleased to see Marcos Rojo join the club having been impressed by the defender during the World Cup.

He added: "I watched Marcos [Rojo] at the World Cup and thought he was excellent for Argentina whether he played at left-back or left wing-back - and he can play centre-back too."

Evans - now one of the longest-serving players at United - has also been impressed with how Ander Herrera has settled in following his move from Athletic Bilbao and was similarly full of praise for Daley Blind.

He said: "Ander has settled in brilliantly. He's a great lad and the way he played in pre-season showed just what a good player he's going to be.

"I watched Daley in the World Cup and he was very impressive. The manager knows him well and he's come through the Ajax youth system, which is something the manager had a lot of input into so he'll understand the manager's way of playing really well."

The designer of the uniform for the Colombian women’s cycling team decided to put a flesh colour in the most awkward place, which has caused some people to question whether it’s sexist.

The skin-toned colour on the kit was located around the groin area and stomach, which made it look like the outfit was see through.

‘Not sure what to make of the Colombian women’s cycling team’s gear ? sexist or feminist?,’ said Twitter user Fidelma Carolan after the photo was posted online by @Ultimo_km1.

Hilary Evans was more concerned about the way it looked and added: ‘I’m no fashion expert but even I know that the Colombia women’s cycling team kit seen here is a genuine disaster.’

The athletes had been pictured in the kit while taking part in a race in Italy.

Sports Man Utd defender reveals buzz in squad when Louis van Gaal landed Radamel Falcao

Despite having the day off on deadline day, many of the United players watched closely to happenings off the pitch as manager Louis van Gaal sensationally secured the loan deal of Falcao, as well as landing defender Daley Blind.

And Evans described the buzz in the squad when the Falcao move was confirmed, which overshadowed the departures of Danny Welbeck to Arsenal and Tom Cleverley to Aston Villa.

"All the lads were talking about it when we got back into training, particularly the fact that we'd signed [Radamel] Falcao and Daley Blind, while Danny Welbeck and Tom Cleverley had gone," Evans told manutd.com.

"It will change the dressing room dynamics but while we've got two good players going out, we've got two good players coming in.

"That's how football works, things move on. We must make sure we concentrate on welcoming the new lads and start winning games."

Evans also revealed how the uncertainty of the transfer window affects players, especially in the mad rush of deadline day when families are involved in last-minute decisions.

"One day you might be playing somewhere and the next day you can be playing in another country and have to move your whole family or you move from one side of the country to the other.

"Looking at it from that aspect, it's a big thing.

"It's obviously exciting and crazy to watch all the transfers happening between clubs, especially those that you maybe didn't see happening, but they could be good moves for a club or a player."

Sports Jonny Evans will be playing for his future when he returns for Manchester United tonight

He will be a steal for Bayern Munich if this morning’s reports are to be believed.However, there is some positivity for United at the back, as Jonny Evans is set to make his return to the first team for this evening’s Capital One Cup game against MK Dons.The only available central defenders United have at the moment are Blackett, Jones, Michael Keane and, now, Evans.

Manchester United have conceded three goals in their opening two Premier League games of the season, picking up just one point.

Whilst some people, through desperation more than anything else, might point out that United went without a win in the first two games in the 1992-93, 1998-99 and 2007-08 seasons, it is little consolation to the fans at the moment.

Nemanja Vidic, Rio Ferdinand and Patrice Evra all left the club this summer and as yet United have not brought in sufficient replacements. Luke Shaw has been injured since before the season kicked off and Marcos Rojo, the latest signing from Sporting Lisbon, is still without a work permit.

It would be easy then to point fingers at the defence for not staying tight enough at the back. Whilst they haven’t looked particularly steady, the bigger issues seems to be the lack of cover they have been provided from the midfield. Darren Fletcher, Tom Cleverley and Marouane Fellaini have had an awful start to the season. With Ander Herrera, Michael Carrick and Anderson all injured, Louis van Gaal’s options in the midfield of the park are incredibly limited.

Against Sunderland, Van Gaal was forced in to using Adnan Januzaj in the centre of midfield, a player who has always been used on the wing or up front in the first team, which indicates how desperate the manager is.

With better players in midfield it would stand to reason that the defensive back three, which has mainly comprised of Tyler Blackett, Phil Jones and Chris Smalling, would have an easier job.

Blackett was guilty of a couple of mistakes against Swansea but for a 20-year-old who has just made his debut, for the most part he looks remarkably composed. Jones has been alright too, whilst Smalling has looked a bit out of sorts.

It is incredible that a player of Mehdi Benatia’s quality is on the market but United apparently haven’t gone for him. He will be a steal for Bayern Munich if this morning’s reports are to be believed.

However, there is some positivity for United at the back, as Jonny Evans is set to make his return to the first team for this evening’s Capital One Cup game against MK Dons.

The only available central defenders United have at the moment are Blackett, Jones, Michael Keane and, now, Evans. Smalling went off against Sunderland with an injury. At 26-years-old, Evans is the most experienced of the bunch, and hopefully his presence can make a difference to that defensive line.

Evans will likely be grateful that he can be eased in to his first game against League One opposition, in preparation for this weekend’s game against Burnley.

You would imagine Van Gaal is on the look out to sign more defenders before the transfer window closes, so Evans should see this as his opportunity to prove to the manager that he should be one of the starting three at the back this season.
