Raphael Varane was replaced at half-time in the win over Nottingham Forest over injury fears.
However, Erik ten Hag’s comments after the match suggested the move was simply a precautionary one:
“He had complaints, we didn’t want to risk him,” Ten Hag said. “We know we have Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof, good replacements. So we don’t take the risk, but what the complaint is and if it is really bad, we don’t know. We have to wait.”
Manchester United confirmed last week that Mason Mount would be out until after next month’s international break due to a ‘small complaint’.
No details on the nature of the injury have been given but a return vs Burnley is touted.
Rasmus Hojlund could make his Man United debut this weekend vs Arsenal. “Not for tomorrow,” the Manchester United boss said last Friday.
“[He’s] near. Today, for the first time, he came into team training so next week we expect him to do a full week of team training so he is near to the squad.”
