Hernandez set for month out

Published Add your comment

Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez is facing a month out of action with ankle ligament damage suffered during Saturday's 1-0 win at Aston Villa.

Hernandez could miss six games before the new year after suffering the setback when his foot appeared to get caught in the Villa Park surface early in the first half.

A first United goal from Phil Jones after 20 minutes enabled the Red Devils to consolidate second place in the Barclays Premier League and manager Sir Alex Ferguson said of Hernandez's injury: "We think it's torn ankle ligaments unfortunately."
