Manchester United duo Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes have both been injured in training today and are major doubts for tomorrow's clash with Bournemouth.
Pogba and Fernandes have flourished while on the pitch together since football's resumption as United chase a Champions League spot.
But United fans will be sweating following reports from The Mirror that both midfielders were hurt in a training ground collision.
Pogba reportedly clattered into Fernandes as the duo were put through their paces in training, with Portuguese star Fernandes coming off worse in the exchange.
United are yet to comment on the incident but long-term injury could threaten their scintillating start to football's resumption.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side are unbeaten since football's restart and are two points behind fourth placed Chelsea.
Pogba and Fernandes linked up on Tuesday night as United thumped Brighton 3-0 at the AMEX Stadium.
Last week, United coach Michael Carrick discussed the partnership between Fernandes and Pogba - highlighting the current balance of their midfield.
"It is understandable why a lot of the questions are 'can they play together' because they are two fantastic talents," the former England international told ESPN per Manchester Evening News.
"We feel we've got a really good balance in midfield between all the lads really.
"It is kind of unfair to single them out asking 'can they play together' because the other boys have done a terrific job and will have plenty to say as well.
"Of course, the talk is about Bruno and Paul and I'm sure they can play together.
"That's why they are both here at the club and I'm sure they are looking forward to it. But as Bruno and Paul would totally understand me saying, it is not just about them."
Do you think Manchester United will finish in the top four this season?
