PSV Eindhoven manager Phillip Cocu has revealed Andres Guardado may miss the side's Champions League game against Manchester United tonight (25 November) due to injury. Speaking in a press conference ahead of the visit to Old Trafford, the boss said that the Mexico international needs a late medical test after picking up an injury in the weekend's draw with Willem II.
"He has received treatment since the game against Willem II. We will train tonight and then the medical staff will assess him before we take a decision," Cocu said, as quoted by PSV's official website, also confirming that Guardado had missed the team's Monday training session.
His absence would be a key one for PSV, with the former Valencia star proving impressive in the side's 2-1 home victory over Manchester United earlier in the campaign.
Despite the midfielder's availability, Cocu has talked up his team's chances of securing another good result against the Premier League giants. PSV are currently sat in second in Group B, with six points after four games, one less than Manchester United and equal with Wolfsburg, who will visit CSKA Moscow this game round.
"A win in the first leg at home has given the team the confidence of pulling off another good result," Cocu said. "You have to believe in something to achieve it. I think we have shown we have given our all in all Champion League matches, apart from the first half in Moscow. Everybody approaches the game with different tactics and Manchester United will be doing the same."
Cocu has also expressed hope that Old Trafford fans don't give Hector Moreno a hostile reception after the Mexican centre-back injured Luke Shaw in the reverse fixture. "I hope not," Cocu said when asked about the possibilities of a backlash regarding the double leg-break. "It was an awful injury and of course we hope he will recover soon and quickly return to the pitch."
