    He is our best CB and was ranked third best in the world earlier in the week but I don't think he is a mile ahead of Stones or Ota. If he is out for an extended period, which seems a distinct possibility, it will be a big blow but not an insurmountable one.

    I hope for his sake that it's not a injury that limits his long term progression.

    Hopefully it's just a Ryan Giggs international break kind if injury.

    It's only my opinion but Stones and Otamendi are nowhere near the class of Laporte.
    Hopefully Stones can get fit and step up but i have my doubts, hopefully i'm wrong

    Hope Laporte is ok obviously but I agree. I am absolutely convinced Garcia is going to be an extremely good player for someone, if not for us. If this means he gets some game time it could be a disguise (assuming the injury is less serious than a ruptured ligament).

    Either of those fractures should take 6-12 weeks to heal and that'd give him 1-2 month in training before he comes back.

    Even Luke Shaw was back in training after 7 months and he snapped both of them in half. Simple fractures are much more preferable than ligaments rupturing.

    I will use my social media investigating to conclude since he hasn’t posted his generic post match IG photo that it’s a serious injury and he’ll be out a long while. Not good.

    The tibia can be a real twat to heal,you really don't want to break that,fibula is easier but either or both can need internal or external fixation

    Just looked like an impact injury to me. With his past record they may have stretchered him off as a precaution
    Hopefully nothing more than bad bruising
