Coming into the 2015-16 Premier League season, Bastian Schweinsteiger was supposed to provide stability in the Manchester United midfield.

He has done anything but that.
[ UPDATE ] After his latest call-up with the German national team, the 31-year old has reportedly suffered an MCL injury, according to head coach Joachim Löw.
The status of Schweinsteiger’s injury is yet to be determined, as he is traveling to Munich to be further examined and diagnosed.
In addition to Schweinsteiger, who has missed significant time this season with club side Manchester United due to injury, Mesut Ozil and Karim Bellarabi were each sidelined during Germany’s training session on Wednesday.
Depending on the severity of the injuries, the players could miss both of Die Mannschaft’s upcoming friendlies against England and Italy, as Löw and his team continue preparations for the 2016 Euro Championships.
This season, Schweinsteiger has started in 23 matches across all competitions for United, including just 13 in the Premier League. In that span, the German has racking up an underwhelming one goal and zero assists.
