Manchester United midfielder Christian Eriksen is set to be out at least three months with an ankle injury suffered against Reading in the FA Cup on Saturday.

Eriksen left Old Trafford on crutches following a challenge from Andy Carroll, who was later sent off following another late tackle on Casemiro.

United expect Eriksen to be ruled out until late April, but there remains hope he might play again this season.

The club said in a statement on Tuesday: "Christian Eriksen is expected to be out of action for an extended period because of an ankle injury sustained in our FA Cup victory over Reading on Saturday.
