Dutch-born Ghanaian defender Timothy Fosu-Mensah has been ruled out of the season due to injury.
 
The Manchester United young defender picked up a shoulder injury during their game with Manchester City.
 
Manager Jose Mourinho confirmed on Wednesday afternoon that the 19-year-old will sit out for the rest of the 2016/17 season.
 
"The situation is simple. 17 matches in seven weeks, with 16 players is impossible" Mourinho to MUTV
 
"It was not a gamble, it was a simple decision. It was a decision based on common sense. 17 matches in seven weeks in April and May.
 
"So since the moment we lost players, initially four of them in one week , we lost Smalling and Jones to the national team and Rojo and Zlatan against Anderlecht.
 
"After that we lost boys who could be alternatives - Ashley Young, Luke Shaw, Fosu-Mensah."
