Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag has allayed fears of a recurring injury for Mason Mount, who was substituted at half-time in our win over Crystal Palace.
The Englishman who just returned from injury was replaced by Victor Lindelof, which raised concerns of a recurrence of the injury that has kept him out for the last month.
However, Ten Hag confirmed that his substitution at the break was pre-planned and part of his recovery schedule.
“Definitely, [it was planned] before,” said Ten Hag. “He’s returning from an injury and we have to build this up. We go too quickly and we get a drop, we want to avoid that. I think his performance was very good.”
Mount joined Manchester United during the summer, in a shocking move that saw him leave boyhood club, Chelsea.
