Manchester United’s quest for consistency this season has been marred by a growing list of injuries, and the international break might add to their physio room concerns. Despite securing three points against Luton on Saturday, the victory possibly came at a price with two additional injuries.

Jonny Evans and Aaron Wan-Bissaka were already sidelined before the match, and now Christian Eriksen and Rasmus Hojlund, both forced off with complaints, are causes for concern heading into the international break.

Here’s a roundup of United’s injury concerns:

Christian Eriksen
Issue: Unknown
What Ten Hag said: “In this moment, I can’t comment anything about it because I don’t know the assessment. You have to wait 24 hours. Give them and the medical (team) 24 hours to see what is the problem, if there is a problem.”
Potential return date: Unknown

Aaron Wan-Bissaka
Issue: Illness
What Ten Hag said: “Aaron is ill, so we had to change, but it is what it is and we have to do it often.”
Potential return date: November 26
