Sean Longstaff injury update emerges – and it’s good & bad news following scans..

According to injury data analyst Ben Dinnery, scans have revealed that Sean Longstaff damaged his posterior cruciate ligament in a challenge with Robert Snodgrass last weekend.

The good news is that Dinnery insists that he’s NOT suffered a rupture, but the bad news is that the severity of this posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) injury is not yet clear ahead of his meeting with a specialist today.

That said, Ben states below that Longstaff could yet return within a month if he’s suffered just a ‘minor tweak’ or ‘strain’ – so let’s hope for good news on that front:

It’s been made clear already that he will miss Saturday’s home clash with Everton – which is no surprise given he was spotted attending an U-23 game in crutches last night – but hopefully his meeting with the specialist is a positive one.

Here’s hoping for positive news following his reported meeting with a knee specialist today!
