Jude Bellingham was one of the bright spots in Real Madrid’s 2-0 win over Manchester United on Wednesday night.

Making just his second start for the club, the English midfielder put up a resilient showing that even included his first goal for the Merengues.

According to reports from AS, Los Blancos are very optimistic about Bellingham’s physical condition.

There were reports that his debut would be delayed out of caution of his knee injury that kept him out towards the back end of last season, but it is now clear that he has no discomfort in his right knee.

Bellingham off to a positive start at Real Madrid

The youngster has left a strong impression in the limited time he has had on the field so far against both AC Milan and Manchester United.

Not only has Bellingham proved that he is a star but has also taken a step forward as one of the leaders on the field. The report from AS calls him the best player on the field against the Red Devils.

The teenage sensation played 45 minutes on the night, netting the opener from a sumptuous Rudiger assist in just the sixth minute.

Further, he completed two dribbles, won eight duels and completed 85% of his attempted passes.

The midfield prodigy spoke to the media after scoring his first goal for Real Madrid and highlighted the happiness he derived in playing alongside the world’s best.

“I am very happy to play with these players and I say it in every interview. The goal was after a great pass from Rüdiger. It’s a great joy to play with footballers who understand my movements,” he said.

With Bellingham proving his quality from the very start, he makes a strong case to enter Carlo Ancelotti’s starting lineup for the league opener.

Real Madrid were sent in a state of worry last night as their defensive options appeared to have fully diminished.

With Eder Militao already out on the sidelines, Los Blancos lost David Alaba to an injury in the first half of their game against Las Palmas at the Santiago Bernabeu.

It left Carlo Ancelotti with just two frontline senior centre-backs in Antonio Rudiger and Nacho Fernandez.

And by the end of the match, Rudiger was seen limping even though he played the entire 90 minutes.

Rudiger’s knock not serious

The sight of the German being in discomfort raised some concerns. But now, journalist Melchor Ruiz of COPE has provided a positive update on Rudiger’s situation which will come as a relief for Real Madrid fans.

As per the update, Rudiger was put through tests today and the results show that his condition is nothing to be concerned about.

All signs point towards the former Chelsea ace being available to play against La Liga leaders Girona on Saturday away at Montilivi.

This comes as a big relief for Los Blancos who would have been left with Nacho as the last man standing in the centre-back department if Rudiger too was injured.

What did Ancelotti say?

Speaking after the 2-0 win over Las Palmas last night, Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti had indicated that Rudiger’s injury was not something to worry about, saying:

“Rüdiger is touched, it’s a blow, but we think it’s going to be fine for the next game. The Alaba thing is a problem with the abductor and I don’t think he’ll be there on Saturday.”

And that is how it has panned out with Rudiger’s knock not serious and the German is now expected to be ready for the Girona clash.

As for Alaba, he will undergo MRI scans tomorrow to determine the extent of his injury.
