Nemanja Matic was ruled out of Manchester United’s Premier League clash with Liverpool on Sunday and is set to miss multiple weeks of action due to injury.
The Serbia international midfielder has been one of the mainstays of the United midfield this season under both Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his predecessor Jose Mourinho.
But United faced Liverpool with Scott McTominay in the centre of the park in Matic’s place after the former Chelsea man pulled up with an injury in training on Saturday.
While the exact nature of the injury was not immediately disclosed, Matic is expected to be out for two to three weeks due to the problem.
“We tried to get him fit for the game but it wasn’t to be,” manager Solskjaer said of Matic’s injury when speaking to MUTV ahead of kick-off on Sunday.
That means he will miss the Premier League meetings with Crystal Palace and Southampton in the next seven days, and will also be absent for the trip to Paris Saint-Germain for the second leg of the Champions League tie which United trail 2-0 after the Old Trafford meeting.
