Manchester United fear Mason Mount could be out for longer than first expected with the hamstring injury he picked up against Tottenham.

Initial tests indicated the £55million signing from Chelsea faced three weeks out and would be back just after the international break.

There are concerns, however, that he could be out for up to six weeks which would see him miss the visit of Brighton after the international break and potentially United’s first Champions League group game as well as the next two matches against Nottingham Forest and Arsenal.

Ten Hag’s side have made an unconvincing start to the season and will be hoping for a rapid up-turn in performances.

They were fortunate to win their first game of the season 1-0 against Wolves, who were controversially denied a late penalty. 

United were then outplayed against Spurs as they were beaten 2-0 thanks to a Pepe Matar Sarr striker and an own goal from Lisandro Martinez.

The manager remained positive about his side despite the result, as he said: ‘The performance first half (was) very good, but you have to understand you have to score a goal,’ he insisted.

‘Because of the meaning of the first goal, players have to take responsibility. Focus, passion and desire in this moment to keep the overview and score the first goal.

‘It’s about belief and we believe these players because of last year as well. They can score goals.’

United will next be in action against Nottingham Forest on Saturday.
