Many fans weren’t blessed with the same good fortune, but Manchester United midfielder Nick Powell has revealed that he completely missed his teammates’ dismal Europa League defeat against Midtjylland on Thursday night because he was busy at home playing FIFA.

Powell is currently on loan at Hull City, where he is yet to make his debut due to a pesky injury. However, quite understandably, the 21-year-old still had better things to do than to watch his parent club labour to a 2-1 defeat out in Denmark.

This from the Press Association’s Manchester United correspondent Simon Peach…

Let’s face it, who can blame him?

    Well, it’s the only time that he is guaranteed a place in a starting eleven, so you can hardly blame the chap. Unfortunately, he backed the wrong horse (in the short term, anyway) moving to Manchester United when he did.

    The club is under a huge amount of pressure to perform well and quickly, with relatively untested youth such as Nick Powell destined to be benched or farmed out in preference of tried-and-tested players who can drag the club out of the mire.

    Fret not, Nick, you are always welcome at St. James’ Park!
