Christian Eriksen out for three months with ankle injury

Manchester United have confirmed that Midfielder Christian Eriksen will be out until late April or early May with an ankle injury he sustained during an fa cup game against Reading

Manchester United’s statement reads;

“Our Danish midfielder was withdrawn in the second half of the 3-1 win, after being caught by a tackle from Reading striker Andy Carroll, who was later sent off for two bookable offences.

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

“The 30-year-old’s absence will be a big disappointment to manager Erik ten Hag and fans, given the consistency of his performances throughout the season so far, making 31 appearances since arriving at Old Trafford.”

Christian Eriksen joined Manchester United from Premier League side Brenford in the summer after a short loan spell at the London based club.

Since then, he has been a key figure in United’s Midfield alongside Casemiro and Bruno Fernandes.

He has featured for Manchester United 19 league appearances scoring just once and creating seven assists.
