United’s head coach said: “Bruno twisted his ankle. I think he did similar, I can’t remember the game, but not too long ago in a match. He was in a bit of pain. We don’t think it’s serious at the moment, but let’s wait and see.”

Asked about his decision to replace Sean Longstaff with Alexander Isak at the break, Howe said: "Sean was just a tactical switch, 2-0 down, cup final, I didn’t feel we had a minute to waste to chase the game, so we brought Alex.”
