Raphael Varane Doubtful For Manchester Derby

Manchester United defender Raphael Varane is an injury doubt for Saturday's derby with Manchester City after suffering a hamstring injury.

The France World Cup winner, 28, limped off after 38 minutes in United's 2-2 Champions League draw against Atalanta.

Victor Lindelof is also doubtful after missing the game in Italy, while Varane only returned from a groin injury in last weekend's 3-0 win at Tottenham.

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said Varane will be assessed on Wednesday.

He added: "First look, felt his hamstring. He didn't want to risk anything. First assessment does not look good. Fingers crossed."

Fifth-placed United host rival third-placed City in the Premier League (kick-off 12:30 GMT), trailing Pep Guardiola's side by three points.
