Ten Hag on injured Man Utd duo

Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag has provided injury updates on Raphael Varane and Victor Lindelof.

The Red Devils played out a 1-1 draw against Brentford on the road on Saturday night. They were completely outclassed and were lucky to pick up a point from the contest.

In the same game, Varane was substituted at the half-time interval after picking up a knock while Victor Lindelof was taken off shortly after the hour mark with a muscle issue.

When asked for updates on the duo, Ten Hag said that Varane was substituted as a precaution while Lindelof will need to be assessed further to know the extent of the damage.

"Rapha we took him off as a precaution at half-time and Victor he came off but we have to assess him tomorrow," Ten Hag said.

United were lucky to grab a point from the west London trip. They are now 11 points behind fourth-placed Aston Villa with a game in hand.

Meanwhile, there is an eight-point deficit between them and fifth-placed Spurs. United need a miracle to secure Champions League football.
