In-form Man Utd striker Rasmus Hojlund sidelined for up to three weeks due to injury

Manchester United have suffered a setback as in-form striker Rasmus Hojlund faces an anticipated absence of two to three weeks due to a muscle injury.

That means the 21-year-old will definitely sit out Saturday's Premier League match against Fulham, and almost certainly miss the Manchester derby on March 3.

Hojlund has been in a rich vein of scoring form, netting eight goals in his last eight appearances for United. His brace against Luton last Sunday also made him the youngest player ever to score in six consecutive Premier League games.

A United statement on Friday read: "Rasmus Hojlund has suffered a muscle injury which is expected to rule him out for two to three weeks. Wishing you a speedy recovery, Rasmus."

The Denmark international's absence will leave Erik ten Hag short of options in attack with Anthony Martial already missing, and is a second significant setback this week following news that Luke Shaw will miss several months with a leg problem.
