Manchester United have confirmed that new signing Mason Mount will be unavailable for the Nottingham Forest and Arsenal clash.
This follows an injury the midfielder picked up during United’s clash with Tottenham Hotspur over the weekend which saw United lose 2-0 to the Spurs.
United have further announced that Mount will be out for the whole Month,
“Mason Mount is set to miss Saturday’s game against Nottingham Forest due to an injury picked up in last weekend’s encounter with Tottenham Hotspur’
“The small complaint is expected to keep Mount out until the international break next month.” United’s statement read.
Mount becomes the sixth player to join Erik ten Hag’s injury list and the second midfielder after Kobbie Mainoo suffered an ankle injury in pre-season which is expected to rule him out of action for the first part of the season.
Mount’s injury might impact United’s plans to recruit another midfielder before the window closes on September 1.
The midfielder joined Man Utd during the summer transfer window for £55m from Premier League rivals Chelsea, putting pen to paper on a four-year deal, with the option for another year.
