After a fierce derby battle, many players in the Shenhua formation were injured. Yesterday, Zhao Mingjian and Sun Shilin both went to the hospital for an MRI examination. Judging from the results of the inspection and the recovery over the past two days, the injuries of many players are not too optimistic.
Zhao Mingjian’s injuries are the most serious. In the 64th minute, Shenhua and SIPG launched a very fierce fight in the midfield. Mu Yi fouled Zhao Mingjian and Shenhua got a set kick in the midfield. Shenhua kicked off the ball, Bi Jinhao flew the header, Zhao Mingjian suddenly slowed down while chasing the ball, and then fell to the ground in pain. Since the game did not enter a dead ball state, Zhao Mingjian lay on the turf for nearly two minutes before the team doctor was able to enter the field for treatment. After inspection by the team doctor, Zhao Mingjian could not persist in the game and was replaced by Yu Hanchao. From the MRI examination report, Zhao Mingjian had a muscle strain, and the strain was more serious, which was completely consistent with the judgment of the team doctor at that time. Immediately after the game, Cui Kangxi once said: "Zhao Mingjian's injury is more serious and needs further examination." As the strain is more serious, it will be difficult for Zhao Mingjian to compete in the second round with SIPG on the 23rd.
Sun Shilin went to the hospital with Zhao Mingjian for examination, who replaced Zhu Chenjie in the 79th minute. It is understood that Sun Shilin suffered from knee joint discomfort after the game. Whether he can catch up with SIPG is currently difficult to determine.
Zhu Chenjie, who played during the intermission and stopped in the 79th minute, also suffered an injury during the game and got his ankle broken. In order to avoid aggravation of his injuries, Cui Kangxi replaced him for rest. Judging from the situation in these two days, Zhu Chenjie's injury is more complicated than expected, and it is difficult to say whether he can catch up with the second round of Derby.
Zhao Mingjian, Zhu Chenjie and Sun Shilin are all players in the midfield, and Shenhua can draw with opponents in the first round by relying on tenacious defense. Once they are unable to play due to injuries, they will inevitably have a certain impact on Shenhua's defensive formation and further increase the difficulty of Shenhua games.
