Manchester United right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka suffered a hamstring injury in the defeat to Brighton at the weekend.
The 25-year-old only came on with 5 minutes remaining on Saturday but it is believed that he picked up the problem in the closing stages of the game. He could be sidelined for up to two months.
Wan-Bissaka’s absence will be a big blow for manager Erik ten Hag but there is some good news for the Dutchman on the injury front, with both Raphael Varane and Mason Mount closing in on a return to full fitness.
Varane has been sidelined since the 3-2 win over Nottingham Forest last month and, while the Frenchman may not be ready to face Bayern Munich on Wednesday night, he could make his comeback against Burnley this weekend.
Mount, meanwhile, has recovered from a thigh injury that has kept him out of contention since the loss to Tottenham on August 19th.
Six other United players remain on the treatment table
Sofyan Amrabat has yet to make his debut since joining from Fiorentina three weeks ago. The Moroccan international arrived at Old Trafford with a back problem and he has yet to start training.
Luke Shaw has a muscular injury that will likely sideline him until the next international break, while Kobbie Mainoo and Amad Diallo (both knee) are not expected to be available any time soon either.
Third-choice keeper Tom Heaton has not featured in the matchday squad so far this season. The 37-year-old is reportedly undergoing rehab on a calf strain.
The fitness of Tyrell Malacia is still a mystery. Ten Hag said back in late August that the Dutchman could return from a knee injury in a few weeks but we have yet to see the defender on the training pitch.
