Obertan Injury – Forcing Change?

12 years ago

It looks as though Gabriel Obertan could miss at least the Manchester United match due to another foot injury, if reports prove correct.

A bit of a shame as he had his best forty five minutes so far this season at Old Trafford up against Evra.

His (Obertan’s) confidence is rock bottom judging by his Anfield performance, so coming out of the firing line could prove a blessing for both player and manager.

In fact, even though we have no natural replacement on the right, it sometimes helps when a manager’s hand is forced by injury and he has to come up with an alternative that proves a hit.

Let’s hope Alan Pardew has something up his sleeve, maybe we will see Gosling and Ben Arfa incorporated into a slightly different tactical set-up.
