Concussed Rafael to miss Cup tie
Manchester United full-back Rafael will miss Saturday's FA Cup tie against Southampton as a precaution after being stretchered off at Blackpool on Tuesday night with concussion.
The Brazilian defender was involved in a sickening collision with Marlon Harewood and was taken to hospital for X-rays.
He was quickly given the all-clear and was able to return to Manchester with his team-mates following the dramatic 3-2 win.
However, as with all cases of concussion, United will ensure Rafael gets the correct break from physical contact and the 20-year-old will not travel to the south coast for this weekend's fourth-round tie.
