Victor Lindelof will miss Manchester United’s Tuesday’s Champions League encounter with Young Boys and the coming weeks through injury.

The 24-year-old has started the club’s last seven matches in all competitions but was visibly struggling towards the end of Saturday’s 0-0 draw with Crystal Palace.

Jose Mourinho has confirmed Lindelof has a ‘proper injury’ that requires a scan on Tuesday and will keep him out for some time.

Matteo Darmian made his first appearance since the opening day against the Eagles but he also missed Monday’s training session along with fellow defender Marcos Rojo.

Luke Shaw is available after serving a one-match domestic ban.

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho wants his side to take the earliest opportunity to progress to the knockout phase with victory against Young Boys at Old Trafford.

If the Red Devils claim three points and Valencia fail to defeat Juventus in Turin, then United will seal their place in the last 16 with a game to spare – which is a trip to the Spanish outfit.

Mourinho said in his pre-match press conference: “I want my players to be proactive, not reactive. I want my players to be strong.

“It is not a crucial game, but I want to play like it is the last chance to qualify. I want to play like a knockout game.”
