The injury prone Stuart Holden was stretchered off after Jonny Evans tackle opened up a big bloody gash in his knee knee. The Man Utd defender and the American midfielder both went for the ball fair and square but Evans right foot left the ground and he went studs up into Holden.
You could see Nani showing a great interest in the proceedings given the brouhaha surrounding Jamie Caragher’s tackle on him a few weeks ago.The zero tolerance policy kicked in and Evans was shown a red card. He now faces a 3 match ban but Utd should get back Vidic and Ferdinand after the international break.
Owen Coyle now awaits word from the medical staff on Holden’s condition. Hopefully it is nothing more serious than a wound.
