Manchester United issue triple injury update after Brentford draw

The latest Man Utd injury news after three players suffered scares in the weekend draw with Brentford

Erik ten Hag issued a triple injury update for Manchester United after their 1-1 draw with Brentford in the Premier League on Saturday night.

United were fortunate to leave London with even a point after they were outplayed for a large majority of the game against a Brentford side who wasted an abundance of clear goalscoring opportunities.

It looked like United had nicked an unlikely win when Mason Mount netted his first goal for the club in the sixth minute of second-half stoppage time, only for Brentford defender Kristoffer Ajer to grab a thoroughly deserved equaliser just three minutes later.

There was further bad news for Ten Hag with starting centre-backs Raphael Varane and Victor Lindelof both taken off following injury scares, while teenage attacker Alejandro Garnacho headed straight down the tunnel after he was substituted as well.

Speaking after the game, the United manager revealed eased concerns surrounding Varane and Garnacho but admitted that further clarity was needed on Lindelof's situation.

Asked specifically about Garnacho, he said: "He is okay. Of course, he had a heavy trip but he is okay."

Quizzed on the fitness of the two central defenders who started the draw with Brentford he added: "I can't tell. We took Rapha off as a precaution at half-time and Victor we have to assess tomorrow." There was some encouraging injury news for United at least with Lisandro Martinez and Casemiro both marking their respective returns to action from the bench.
