Manchester United's reserve side played Leicester City yesterday evening, and came away with a 1-1 draw. Robin van Persie returned from his ankle injury and set up United's goal for Jeremy Luke Matt Sean Goss, but there was some bad news on the injury front as well. Both Rafael and Adnan Januzaj were withdrawn with injuries.

There's no word yet on the seriousness of Januzaj's knock, or whether it will affect his availability for the trip to Everton on Sunday.

If so, and if that proves to be serious, then we have to consider the possibility that Rafael has made his last appearance for the club.

No, no. We're okay.

In other first-team related news, Jonny Evans played his first game since completing his six-match suspension for gobby naughtiness, and both he and Van Persie nearly snatched winners, only to be denied by Leicester's keeper. James Wilson played the full game. What? Oh, nothing. Just ... something in TBB's eye ...
