Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag says Rasmus Hojlund will undergo an assessment on his hamstring injury in the next 24 hours.
The Dane had to be substituted midway through the second half of the 1-0 win against Luton Town at the weekend and, asked about the striker’s fitness following the match, ten Hag said:
“We do an assessment and we have to wait 24 hours for the conclusion. So we’ll give the medical team 24 hours to see what the problem is, if there is a problem.”
Christian Eriksen also picked up a knee problem against the Hatters, with the midfielder being forced off five minutes before halftime, with Mason Mount taking his place.
