“ It is an aggressive muscular injury, ” Mourinho said at Friday’ s press conference .

“ He has not had a scan yet but the player is experienced . He knows what injury is .

“ From my experience , the painful scream and way it happened , it will be a long time .

“ It is not a little muscular injury that he will be ready in a week or 10 days .

“ For me and Alexis Sanchez, the grade is different to the one that Lindelof ( expected to miss three weeks due to a thigh strain suffered against Crystal Palace last weekend ) has and that was not easy . ”
