Mason Mount will not play again for Manchester United until after the international break


MASON MOUNT is set to be sidelined until after the international break after picking up an injury in Manchester United’s 2-0 defeat to Tottenham.

The midfielder, 24, has started both of the Red Devils’ Premier League games so far this season – the 1-0 win over Wolves and Sunday’s loss to Spurs.

But he is not expected to feature again until they host Brighton on September 16.

A club statement read: “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.”

Man Utd‘s two matches before the international break come at home to Nottingham Forest and away to Arsenal.

Erik ten Hag’s midfield trio of Mount, Casemiro and Bruno Fernandes have been criticised in their opening games of the season.

Speaking on Monday Night Football, club legend Gary Neville was scathing in the wake of their poor display against Wolves.

He said: “Manchester United‘s midfield was non-existent, it emptied.

“It was a concern. If you watched Man Utd in pre-season, leaving Casemiro on his own when Mason Mount and Bruno Fernandes go forward, it looks great.


“But you’ve got to have a balance. And the front three don’t really work hard enough in a defensive sense.

“That would have been a real worry because Wolves have got a new manager only four days ago and a lot of misery around how their season may end up, but they’ve been brilliant tonight.”

Mount joined Man Utd from Chelsea last month in a deal worth £60million.

But he is yet to complete a full 90 minutes for the club.

Ten Hag replaced him with Christian Eriksen in the 68th minute against Wolves, before Facundo Pellistri took his spot with five minutes to go on Sunday.
