Wan-Bissaka 'in fair bit of pain' after Chelsea's Hudson-Odoi stood on his hand as mystery absence for Man Utd revealed
AARON WAN-BISSAKA missed Manchester United’s dramatic victory over Arsenal after Callum Hudson-Odoi stood on his HAND.
The United right-back suffered the injury during last Sunday’s 1-1 draw with Premier League leaders Chelsea.
Blues flier Callum Hudson-Odoi reportedly trod on the 24-year-old’s hand as they did battle at Stamford Bridge.
And the damaged paw was apparently so painful that Wan-Bissaka had to sit out Thursday night’s 3-2 thriller at Old Trafford.
Caretaker boss Michael Carrick confirmed the injury as he also explained the absence of midfielder Nemanja Matic from the starting XI.
He said: “Nemanja has picked up a little niggle, he felt his hamstring.
“Hudson-Odoi stood on Aaron’s hand the other day, so he’s in a fair bit of pain, it was touch and go but he didn’t make it.”
Wan-Bissaka was replaced by Diogo Dalot, who was on hand to celebrate with his fellow Portugal international Cristiano Ronaldo as he smashed home the match-winner.

The United talisman swept in his 800th career goal from a Marcus Rashford cross before taking his personal tally to 801 with a decisive penalty.
It was the final game in charge for Carrick, who announced after the final whistle he would be leaving the Red Devils after 15 years as player and coach.
He will be replaced by German tactician Ralf Rangnick on an interim basis until at least the summer.
Wan-Bissaka should be fit to face former side Crystal Palace in United’s next fixture on Sunday.
The former England Under-21 international has come in for criticism this season, with Old Trafford hero Roy Keane in particular slamming his recent performances.
