Manchester United right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka will be out for up to two months. It will be a big blow for United as the injury list for the season piles up.

Manchester United are set to miss the services of their preferred right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka due to a hamstring injury that he sustained when he came on in the final minutes against Brighton. With so many players already injured for Man Utd, the injury list just gets bigger for the club. Man Utd already had a horrible start to their season losing 3 of their first 5 games. They are scheduled to play Bayern in their Champions League campaign opener. However, they will be missing the service of their preferred right-back who gave stability to their defence. In his place, Diogo Dalot is set to get an extended run, who is surely better going forward for the Red Devils.

Manchester United suffers Aaron Wan-Bissaka injury blow

Aaron Wan-Bissaka didn’t start against Brighton for Manchester United. There were reports that he might have had an injury scare. However, Erik ten Hag had to bring him on as a damage control measure as United were leaking goals against Brighton at Old Trafford. And, that, proved to be costly for Ten Hag as his injury aggravated and now, he will be out for ‘up to two months’ as confirmed by Laurie Whitwell from The Athletic. Wan-Bissaka has been a key part of Ten Hag’s defence. Now, with him out, Ten Hag will have to rely on Dalot to provide defensive stability. However, Dalot will have his work cut out when he faces the likes of Sane and Koman in the midweek Champions League game against Bayern. It will be interesting to see how Ten Hag copes with his main right-back out for close to two months.
