"This is nothing for joy that manchester has given me," he said on Twitter, along with a selfie of his shiner.
Valencia was involved in an early collision with Joel Campbell and came off significantly worse, sporting a swollen eyebrow which impaired his vision. Yet the Ecuadorian valiantly soldiered on and was only withdrawn in the 77th minute.
It doesn't excuse a selfie, though.
