Eriksen set for one-month absence as Manchester United issue reassuring Hojlund update

Manchester United midfielder Christian Eriksen will be sidelined for around a month after suffering a knee injury, but fellow Denmark international Rasmus Hojlund should return to action before the end of November.

Both Eriksen and Hojlund were substituted during Saturday’s 1-0 Premier League win over Luton Town with knocks, causing the duo to withdraw from Denmark’s squad for Euro 2024 qualifiers against Slovenia and Northern Ireland on Monday.

Erik ten Hag’s Red Devils have been beset by injury problems this season, with key defenders Lisandro Martinez and Luke Shaw still sidelined while Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Raphael Varane have also spent periods in the treatment room.

Casemiro is not expected to return before Christmas after sustaining a hamstring issue, and United will also be without fellow midfielder Eriksen until at least mid-December.

An injury update issued by the club on Monday confirmed Eriksen will be out for around a month after landing awkwardly during the first half of United’s win over Luton.

There is more positive news concerning the condition of Hojlund, however, with the striker hoping to return before the end of November after suffering a muscle strain.

United return to action after the international break with a trip to Everton in the Premier League on November 26, before taking on Galatasaray in a vital Champions League group-stage contest three days later.
