Meanwhile, midfielder Scott McTominay and winger Jadon Sancho were absent from the matchday squad altogether.
When asked at the press conference if they were also injured, Ten Hag replied: “No, Scott is ill.
“And Jadon, on his performance in training, was not selected. You have to reach a level at Manchester United every day and we can make choices in the front line. So for this game he was not selected.”
The Reds now head into the international break, giving the absent and substituted players almost a fortnight to make themselves available for our next fixture, at home to Brighton and Hove Albion on 16 September.
