Tyrone Mings seems to have suffered a serious injury from the opening game.
Aston Villa was defeated 1-5 by Newcastle 스포츠토토 United in the first round of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2023-24 season held at St. James Park in Newcastle, England on the 13th at 1:30 am (Korean time).
The match was one-sided. Villa took the lead six minutes into the first half, allowing Newcastle freshman Sandro Tonali to take the lead. Moussa Diaby, who joined the team in the summer transfer window, scored an equalizer in the 11th minute of the first half, but Villa subsequently conceded four goals throughout the game and ended the match 5-1. Following last season, I expected ‘Emery Magic’, but this day was silent.
Even key defenders were lost. Around the 25th minute of the first half, in the process of landing after Ming’s contest with the opponent, his knee turned, and he fell to the pitch and could not get up. As if sensing that it was a serious injury, Ming’s collapsed on the ground for a while and stamped his feet. Recognizing this, the Villa bench immediately prepared for a replacement, and Pau Torres was put in place of Mings in the 31st minute of the first half. Minx was carried out on a stretcher.
Locally, the possibility of cruciate ligament rupture is being considered. Anterior cruciate ligament injury is one of the most life-threatening injuries. You will usually need to rest for a few months, and in severe cases you may need surgery. Even if the injured area is recovered, it takes quite a long time to go through rehabilitation and return to the ground. The aftereffects that players will experience after that cannot be ignored.
After getting on the stretcher, Minx covered her face and cried. Judging from the reaction of Mingx right after he was injured and when he was replaced, it seems that Mingx’s injury this time was quite serious.
Even coach Unai Emery acknowledged this. “The injury doesn’t look good,” Emery sighed after the match. Having lost one of the team’s key defenders from the opening game, Villa started the season in a difficult situation.
Villa is very worried. This season, he has to achieve a certain level of performance not only in the league but also in European competitions. In this situation, Villa has been agonizing over how to fill Minx’s vacancy since the beginning of the season.
