Erik ten Hag explains latest update on Rasmus Højlund’s Man United injury



| Last Updated:


Erik ten Hag has spoken on Rasmus Højlund after Manchester United confirmed that the striker will miss upcoming games due to injury.

Rasmus Højlund is set to miss the next two or three weeks through what Manchester United have described as a “muscle injury”.

Højlund has been an essential part of Erik ten Hag‘s recent good form, with the striker having scored in the last six Premier League fixtures in a row – so losing him for multiple weeks is a huge blow for the club.

United are readying themselves to face Fulham at Old Trafford in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon, and Ten Hag addressed the striker’s injury in his pre-match press conference on Friday.

It’s a small injury, two to three weeks, that’s what happened,” the United manager told reporters. “That is the risk playing high intensity, training; it’s not a big injury, but he has to wait now for two-three weeks.”

Speaking more generally about injury problems, Ten Hag said: “That is an issue. But also other clubs have this. We have to deal with this.

“I have now the feeling we can deal with it better than in autumn. It is an issue with the depth of the squad.”

Højlund will almost certainly miss United’s next three fixtures, against Fulham, (H) Nottingham Forest (A, FA Cup), and Manchester City (A).

Should he not recover within two weeks, he will miss Everton (H), and should it take three weeks for him to regain fitness, he will miss Sheffield United (H), too.
