Patrick van Aanholt needs oxygen after suffering horrific injury against Man Utd


- Advertisment -

CRYSTAL PALACE left-back Patrick van Aanholt could face a lengthy spell on the sidelines after dislocating his right shoulder.

The defender required oxygen and a stretcher following a collision with Manchester United’s Anthony Martial in the build-up to the second goal of the night.

Van Aanholt attempted to block the Frenchman’s strike but took an innocuous tumble over the striker.

He handed horribly awkwardly and was in immediate pain as the medics came onto the field.

He was spotted at the end of the match with a sling around his right arm.

Boss Roy Hodgson said of the injury: “We’ve had bad luck with defenders, it’s testing are reserves in that respect.

“Patrick [van Aanholt] has hardly missed a game and I don’t know how long it takes to mend a dislocated shoulder but I can only hope he comes back again next season.”

BBC pundit Karen Carney said of the injury: “It was Patrick van Aanholt’s desire to get across and block it and as soon as he went down.

“He’s got gas and air now – not sure if he landed on his shoulder awkwardly?”

Van Aanholt will now undergo scans before determining how long he’ll be sidelined for.

It caps a bad night for Palace who will feel hard-done-by after another night of VAR controversy.

Marcus Rashford opened the scoring on the stroke of half time before Martial put the result beyond doubt with 12 minutes left on the clock.

But Palace had a goal disallowed and were denied a penalty and Hodgson was far from impressed with the decisions.

He added: “What’s the point in getting into it? If I said it was, they say it wasn’t, it becomes like a Christmas pantomime.

“I thought it was a good goal. That’s what VAR gives us at the moment. If that had been scored against us I wouldn’t be expecting it to ruled out but that’s what we have to take now.”
