Due to an ankle injury, Christian Eriksen will be sidelined until late April, which will be a big setback for Manchester United.
After being tackled by Andy Carroll on Saturday night during United’s 3-1 win against Reading in the third round of the FA Cup, the Danish international was forced off.
After the game, Eriksen was spotted leaving Old Trafford on crutches, and United has since been informed that the midfielder will be out for an extended amount of time.
Eriksen’s anticipated comeback date is in late April or early May, which means that he will be out for a substantial chunk of United’s campaign.
Christian Eriksen is anticipated to miss a significant amount of time due to an ankle injury sustained in our Emirates FA Cup victory over Reading on Saturday, according to a statement released by United on Tuesday.
Initial evaluations show that Eriksen is likely to be out until late April or early May, however, investigations are still ongoing.
Given the consistency of his performances throughout the season thus far and the fact that he has made 31 appearances since joining Old Trafford, the 30-year-absence old’s will be a huge disappointment to manager Erik ten Hag and the fans.
However, there is still a chance that Christian will be able to make it back in time to participate in the campaign’s closing stages.
Christian has our warmest wishes for a quick recovery.
