Manchester United have suffered a blow ahead of their match against Fulham after their summer signing Rasmus Hojlund suffered muscle injury that is going to keep him on the sidelines for three weeks.

The £72million summer signing has been in fine form of late, with his two goals against Luton last weekend seeing him become the youngest player ever to score in six consecutive Premier League games.

The 21-year-old injury means that he will miss the Manchester derby at Etihad Stadium on Sunday, March 3.

Apart from Manchester derby,Hojlund will also be absent against Everton and Sheffield United before the March international break.

Manchester United have released a statement that reads: “Rasmus Hojlund will miss Manchester United’s Premier League game against Fulham on Saturday due to a muscle injury.It is expected to keep him out for two to three weeks.”

Manchester United manager Ten Hag confirmed to reporters that,”It’s a small injury, two or three weeks. It’s the risk, playing high intensity. It’s not a big injury but he has to wait for two or three weeks.”
