    Injury scare for Manchester United midfielder Shinji Kagawa

    The Japan international was replaced at half time by Nani after he picked up the injury midway through the 1st half

    London: Manchester United midfielder Shinji Kagawa picked up an injury during the first half of last night's 3-2 comeback win over Braga and he is due for tests on Wednesday to discover the extent of the problem. The Japan international was replaced at half time by Nani after he picked up the injury midway through the first half at Old Trafford.

    "Kagawa twisted his knee," said Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson. "He struggled on for 20 minutes but we will assess in in the morning because we don't know the extent of it at the moment."

    It will be a big blow for United if Kagawa is ruled out ahead of the crucial Premier League fixture against table-toppers Chelsea on Sunday at Stanford Bridge. Goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard is also out for a week after suffering a thumb injury in training.
