David De Gea Injury News: Will Manchester United goalkeeper play against Liverpool on Sunday? After he marched out of the pitch last night.
David De Gea had a great match against Sweden, as Spain played its European qualifier against the Scandinavian team kast night. But the Spanish goalkeeper had to march out of the ground in the 58th minute.
It is reported that De Gea was taken out from the field after the player was seen suffering from massive groin pain during the match. While seeing the player marching out of the field it seemed that De Gea might stay out for a significant time period.
However, according to the ESPN, it was later clarified that De Gea’s injury is not that extreme as it looks, but he would still miss the match against Liverpool on Sunday in the upcoming Premier League match.

It is further revealed by Spain manager Robert Moreno in an interaction after the match that De Gea tried to play through the pain before being removed.
“He had pain in the abductor muscle but he received treatment at halftime and wanted to keep playing,” Moreno said. “He gave us his word, but in the end, he couldn’t continue.”
De Gea appeared for Spain after a while, as Kepa Arrizabalaga has been starting ahead of the Manchester United goalkeeper in recent matches. Moreno praised De Gea’s performance but seemed to suggest that the starting spot could be a battle moving forward.
“If there is a debate at goalkeeper, you will be entertained because there will continue to be a debate,” Moreno said in a post-game news conference.
“Aside from De Gea, others have done well. The goalkeeper is there to make stops and I’m happy that he made the stops he did,” Moreno added. “De Gea is an [accomplished player]. We’re proud to have three goalkeepers of such a high level.”
