It was only ever a matter of time really, wasn’t it? After several weeks of cameos and whispers of an imminent return to full action, has finally picked up an injury, and will miss out on the ’ clash with Wolves this weekend, as per the Chronicle. It is understood that the complaint isn’t too serious, and that his withdrawal from  Bruce’s plans is largely a consequence of United carefully planned rehabilitation process for the former  international, but nonetheless, this latest update certainly represents a step backwards for the big man.

The target man has won a massive 13.1 aerial duels per 90 minutes for so far this , as per Whoscored, and if they can get a willing runner in and around him, he could still be a real asset to them, despite his patchy . For now, however, will have to do more waiting and hoping before they can see their local hero in full flight.
