Christian Eriksen Ruled Out for Three Months Following Ankle Injury.

Manchester United has been dealt a major blow after it was revealed that Christian Eriksen will be out for up to three months due to an ankle injury suffered in the FA Cup tie against Reading.

The 30-year-old midfielder was forced off the field after being tackled by Andy Carroll, leaving Old Trafford on crutches.

This season, Eriksen has been a critical player for boss Erik ten Hag, recording seven assists and scoring once from 19 Premier League appearances.

Man Utd has confirmed that Eriksen will likely be out of the pitch until late April or early May, leaving a massive void in the squad.

Ten Hag has already expressed his disappointment at the loss of the Denmark international, explaining it will be tough to replace his quality in the final third.

With United still fighting for a top-four finish in the Premier League, the club will hope Eriksen can make a speedy recovery. 

What does this mean?
Eriksen’s absence will be felt on the pitch. The midfielder had been instrumental in Man Utd’s impressive recent form, with the club having won their last four Premier League games out of five.

Ten Hag will have to find a way to get his side to the next level without their crucial man. Man Utd’s Carabao Cup semi-final second leg with Nottingham Forest on Wednesday could prove an important test of the club’s depth in midfield.

Ten Hag must now find a way to get his side over the line without Eriksen and will be hoping to call upon Fred and Scott McTominay to help fill the void left by the Dane.

Given the importance of the upcoming games, Man Utd’s medical staff will do all they can to ensure Eriksen returns to action as soon as possible.

The club hopes the midfielder can make a speedy recovery to help them fight for a top-four finish in the Premier League.
