Eriksen Injury Blow: Man Utd Have Replacements - Ten Hag


Manchester United's Christian Eriksen is set to be out until at least late April after sustaining an ankle injury in his side's FA Cup win over Reading on Saturday.

United manager Erik ten Hag believes the club have the "players who can fill the gap" caused by Eriksen's absence.

"On deadline day it's difficult [to bring in a replacement]. You can't make policy on such bad injuries," he said.

"But we have players in the midfield department and good players."

The Denmark midfielder has made 31 appearances for United this season.

The former Ajax, Tottenham, Inter Milan and Brentford player signed a three-year contract at Old Trafford in the summer.

"[He] is expected to be out of action for an extended period," the club said in a statement.

"There is hope that Christian can return in time to play a role in the final stages of the season.

"While investigations are continuing, initial assessments indicate that Eriksen is likely to be out until late April or early May."

United are already missing midfielder Donny van de Beek who was ruled out for the rest of the season with a knee injury in January
