Manchester United duo Rasmus Hojlund and Christian Eriksen have withdrawn from Denmark’s squad for the international break.

The pair sustained injuries during United’s 1-0 win against Luton at Old Trafford on Saturday.

Eriksen came off before half-time when he hurt his knee, and was replaced by Mason Mount.

Hojlund sustained what appeared to be a hamstring problem in the second half, and he required on-pitch treatment.

The forward was replaced by Anthony Martial and headed straight down the tunnel, sparking fear that he could be out for a period of time.

Erik ten Hag was unwilling to speculate on the diagnosis of either player during his post-match press conference.

The club are yet to provide an update but the pair have been withdrawn from Denmark’s squad, which suggests they face at least a week on the sidelines.

United already face an injury crisis, with Luke Shaw, Casemiro, Lisandro Martinez, Amad Diallo, Jonny Evans and Tyrell Malacia on the sidelines.
