Raphael Varane was not in the Manchester United squad to face Brentford at Old Trafford in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.
Scott McTominay scored an injury-time brace to secure an important victory for The Reds.
The Frenchman’s partner, Lisandro Martinez, is out of action for an extended period after he was forced to undergo another operation on his foot.
Victor Lindelöf also came off the pitch after a collision where he seemed to injure his back. He went straight down the tunnel.
However, it has been reported by Tyrone Marshall of the Manchester Evening News that the injury is not serious for Varane and that it is expected he is fit and available after the international break.
Ten Hag said: “He had a little problem. If there had been two or three more days [between matches], he could have played, but there it was too short.”
United have a two-week break from Premier League action and will also be hoping to get others back from injury so that they can turn their season around after a poor start.
This result will be something to build on and Ten Hag was delighted with McTominay’s impact.
“You see he is Manchester United in everything in his heart, he is playing for the badge, he gives his life, when you are coming on and do this for the team it says a lot.”
McTominay said: “I been brought up at this club ever since I was 5 years old. I know the feeling of never being allowed to give up better than anyone.
“That was probably one of my favourite moments ever on a football pitch.”
