Varane could miss Liverpool game as United confirm injury layoff


Manchester United look set to be without Raphael Varane for this month's Premier League meeting with Liverpool.

The central defender sustained a groin injury during Sunday's UEFA Nations League final over Spain in Milan.

Varane was replaced by Bayern Munich's Dayot Upamecano two-minutes before half-time at the San Siro.

United confirmed on Tuesday that their €41million summer signing will be out for "a few weeks". It adds to their defensive worries, with Harry Maguire out for an undetermined period with an ankle injury.

That could open the door for Phil Jones to make a first United appearance in 19-months.

Varane started United's five most recent Premier League games, and was a key member of their side for the Champions League meetings with Young Boys and Villareal.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side return to Premier League action on Saturday away to Leicester City. Four days later, Atalanta visit Old Trafford in a vital Champions League group game.

On Sunday-week, Liverpool visit Old Trafford in a real test of both sides' Premier League mettle.

"Raphael Varane sustained a groin muscle injury in the UEFA Nations League final and has commenced rehabilitation at the club," a statement read.

“He will be out for a few weeks."
