In the first half, Varane was involved in a collision with Brentford striker Ivan Toney as he blocked a shot from the England international from close range and stayed down with an ankle problem towards the end of the first half.

Although he continued to play until half-time, he was replaced by Harry Maguire after 45 minutes with the tie poised at 0-0.

Victor Lindelöf had to be replaced by Lisandro Martínez in the second half with 20 minutes still to play, with the Swedish international holding his hamstring and was spotted limping as he left the Gtech Community Stadium.

Raphaël Varane told Manchester Evening News reporter Steven Railson that his injury was “not too bad” as he left the stadium, but an official update is still pending.

“I can’t tell by now,” he said, delivering United’s official update on the situation when asked about Varane’s injury during his post-match press conference.

“Rapha we took him off as a precaution at half-time and Victor he came off but we have to assess him tomorrow.”
