Marcelo Bielsa may have just confirmed that Kemar Roofe is a doubt for our clash with Aston Villa with a hip problem, but the crocked forward shared a snap on Thursday that should put a lot of supporter’s minds to ease.
Having slipped to back-to-back defeats at the hands of Wigan Athletic and then Brentford, fans would have been forgiven for thinking the pressure of fighting for promotion had begun to take its toll on the squad.
You could almost have said they were bottling a golden opportunity to see United return to the top-tier after more than a decade away, as wins over the Latics and Bees would have kept us in the prime position rather than play runners-up to Sheffield United.
Roofe, though, clearly does not want to give off that image on his Instagram, as he has shared a snap on the social platform joking that Tyler Roberts sabotaged his best Spartan vibes as he exited the tunnel over the weekend.

The duo featured in both of our Easter weekend double-header games, with Roberts starting in the centre of Bielsa’s midfield on both occasions.
Roofe, meanwhile, continued his run of games off the bench, having last started for the Whites when we beat Swansea 2-1 and he ruptured ligaments in his knee.
Our top ‘scorer is also still without a goal to his name since finding the back of Derby County’s net in January, which brought his tally for the term to 14.
