Manchester United’s push for a Champions League spot has hit a snag as striker Rasmus Hojlund is sidelined with a muscle injury, expected to keep him out of action for two to three weeks.

The timing couldn’t be worse for Erik ten Hag’s side, with the Manchester derby looming on March 3, and crucial fixtures against Fulham and Everton on the horizon.

Hojlund, who has become a pivotal figure for United, lighting up the Premier League with his record-breaking scoring streak since the New Year, will be a significant miss.

His absence leaves United with a striking dilemma, relying heavily on Marcus Rashford as Anthony Martial remains unavailable due to a long-term injury.

This setback comes as United aims to narrow the gap with their top-four rivals.
