Ten Hag delivers injury update on Man Utd duo

Manchester United are sweating on the fitness of Rasmus Hojlund and Christian Eriksen after the pair were substituted against Luton Town on Saturday. 

The Red Devils beat the Hatters 1-0 at Old Trafford to claim their fourth win in their last five Premier League matches. But the result was soured by injuries to their Danish duo.

Eriksen was nursing his knee when he was replaced by Mason Mount at the end of the first half. Hojlund, meanwhile, went down twice clutching his hamstring before Anthony Martial took his place in the 79th minute.

In his post-match press conference Man United manager Erik ten Hag revealed that it would be another day before they could assess the extent of the injuries sustained by the two players.

“In this moment, I can’t comment anything about it because I don’t know the assessment,” the Dutchman said.

“You have to wait 24 hours. Give them and the medical (team) 24 hours to see what is the problem, if there is a problem.”

Man United have suffered a multitude of injury setbacks already this season, with six player currently on the treatment table.

“That is our season; so many injuries. Therefore, you have a squad, but we have talked many times about it. Hopefully players are coming back and those new injuries aren’t too bad.”

Man United moved up to seventh in the Premier League table on 21 points after 12 games following the win over Luton. They travel to Goodison Park after the international break to take on Everton in their next league outing on 26 November, giving their stricken players a fortnight to recover.
