Manchester United have been receiving some very bad news all week about their players as several of them will not be available for the third game of the season due to injuries which have both depleted the squad and thrown Ten Hag's system out of balance and he will now have to make a number of changes to cover for the departures. 

One of the first pieces of bad news received during the week was the severity of Mason Mount's injury, as it was expected to be just a "minor niggle" but turned out to be more serious with a hamstring injury that will keep him out for at least 4-6 weeks, indicating that the coach will have to put the best player available in his place. 

There has been talk that Christian Eriksen would be the most obvious choice as in these first two games the Briton has come on as a substitute and the Dane is the one who has come in to cover for him, so he could once again see the starting place that was taken away from him since Mount's arrival and now he will probably be able to show that he is ready to be taken into account again. 

However, he is not the only option Ten Hag wants, as it has also been said that Hannibal Mejbri could receive playing time, as during pre-season he played at a high level and now that the season has started he has not been given a chance, other than in the friendlies that have been played behind closed doors at the Carrington facility. 

United's new casualty 

Just a couple of hours ago it was officially announced that Luke Shaw will be out indefinitely for the next few games, due to a muscle injury that has not yet been disclosed, but which he suffered during the last training session, so Ten Hag will have to worry about covering another position in a Manchester United team that now looks like a hospital with so many injuries.
