Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s hamstring injury may cause him to miss up to two months of the current campaign, dealing Manchester United yet another devastating injury blow.
The 25-year-old was unexpectedly left out of the starting lineup for Saturday’s 3-1 loss to Brighton, and manager Erik ten Hag later revealed that the player had been ill the week before.
In the 85th minute, he was substituted in for Lisandro Martinez and appeared a little uncomfortable following the final horn. According to recent reports from The Athletic, Wan-Bissaka has a significant hamstring injury and will be out for at least two months.
Soon after the rumors surfaced, United provided a slightly more encouraging update, stating: “Aaron Wan-Bissaka is set for a time on the sidelines after sustaining an injury during the closing moments of Saturday’s game against Brighton & Hove Albion.
‘The right-back came on as an 85th-minute substitute, having started the game on the bench after battling illness during the week. Further assessment will be needed to determine how long Wan-Bissaka will be out for, but initial indications suggest it will be several weeks.’
Due to the injury, Diogo Dalot will be United’s only available right-back through the end of the year, continuing the team’s egregiously poor luck with player fitness thus far this season.
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has said that it could take Wataru Endo a while to get used to the Premier League.
Wataru Endo may need some time to adjust to playing in the Premier League and to the higher level at Anfield, according to Jurgen Klopp, who spoke to Liverpool’s official website.
Endo transferred from VfB Stuttgart to Liverpool during the summer transfer period. The Premier League team reportedly paid £16.2 million in transfer fees for the defensive midfielder, according to Sky Sports.
