EPL: Man United Suffer Setback As Top Defender Will Miss Arsenal Clash

Raphael Varane has been injured ahead of this weekend’s English Premier League clash between Manchester United and Arsenal.

This is seen as a setback for Man United as Varane is one of the club’s top defenders at the moment.

The player suffered an extended spell on the sidelines after picking up an injury against Nottingham Forest on Saturday, NewsTimes reports.

According to Sky Sports, the Frenchman could miss up to six weeks of action.

Varane was replaced at half-time as United won 3-2 at Old Trafford last weekend.

Red Devils boss, Erik ten Hag, speaking after the game claimed the decision to substitute Varane was a precautionary one, but it appears the injury may be worse than first thought.

It has also affected any possible departure for former captain, Harry Maguire, who has been linked with West Ham.

Varane will miss this Sunday’s clash at the Emirate Stadium and still be unavailable after the international break.
