Manchester United will be without Raphael Varane due to a groin injury that leaves Ole Gunnar Solskjaer short on options at centre-back for a demanding few weeks.
The French defender suffered the injury during his country’s 2-1 win over Spain on Sunday in the Nations League final.
“Raphael Varane sustained a groin muscle injury in the UEFA Nations League final and has commenced rehabilitation at the club,” United said in a statement.
“He will be out for a few weeks.”
United captain Harry Maguire is also sidelined by a calf problem leaving Solskjaer without his strongest centre-back pairing.
