Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has suggested that midfielder Daley Blind faces a long spell on the sidelines.
The Netherlands international picked up a knee injury during a Euro 2016 qualifier against Latvia, and his loss will be a huge blow for the Red Devils.
There are still question marks on the fitness of Luke Shaw and Michael Carrick, with Van Gaal saying that he will wait until tomorrow to decide his match day squad.
“We have to wait for tomorrow's training session to decide if [some players] are back,” said the Dutchman.
“My philosophy is that you have to train at least one week with the squad, better two. But if you see our circumstances, we maybe have to bring players back to the squad.”
On Blind's injury, Van Gaal explained: "He is not ready, he has a brace on his knee. It’ll be 10 days' rest, then we'll have another scan and say more about his injury.
"It's not as bad as the doctors thought after the match, but it shall be a long story, I believe, but not six months or something like that."
