Premier League Manchester United Set To Miss Hojlund For Weeks

A Manchester United’s hopes of finishing in the top four could be threatened as striker Rasmus Hojlund, who has scored in six straight Premier League games, is expected to miss two to three weeks due to a muscle injury.

Manager Erik ten Hag told reporters on Friday, “It is a small injury, two or three weeks.” “In high-intensity training, there is a chance of injury.

” He must wait two to three weeks even though the injury is not serious.”

The 21-year-old Dane will miss United’s FA Cup fifth-round match against Nottingham Forest on Wednesday as well as the Manchester derby at the Etihad on 3 March due to his recuperation period.

Hojlund has seven goals in the league after leading United past Luton Town 2-1 last Sunday with a brace.

With 44 points, five behind fourth-place Aston Villa, Ten Hag’s team is sixth in the Premier League rankings after winning their past five games across all competitions. Fulham is ranked twelve.

For the first time since British billionaire Jim Ratcliffe’s $1.25 billion purchase of a 25% share in the team was finalised, the management addressed media.

He claimed that he and Ratcliffe have frequent conversations and that he feels confident in the new co-owner.

“Absolutely, we have so many talks, we are very aligned, we have the same ambition and are very aligned in the process,” Ten Hag said.

“I am 19 months in. I see we go in the right direction. I can see a team coming, progressing and developing. We work hard on the training pitch and during games.”
