Varane Doubtful For Manchester Derby With Hamstring Injury

Varane Doubtful For Manchester Derby With Hamstring Injury

French defender Raphael Varane is an injury doubt for Saturday’s derby with Manchester City after suffering a hamstring injury.

The 28-year-old limped off after 38 minutes in United’s 2-2 Champions League draw against Atalanta.

Victor Lindelof is also doubtful after missing the game in Italy, while Varane only returned from a groin injury in last weekend’s 3-0 win at Tottenham.

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said Varane will be assessed on Wednesday.

“First look, felt his hamstring. He didn’t want to risk anything. First assessment does not look good. Fingers crossed.”

Fifth-placed United host rival third-placed City in the Premier League trailing Pep Guardiola’s side by three points.
