Manchester United winger Ashley Young has been ruled out for two to three weeks while Phil Jones "doesn't look great" after the England duo sustained injuries during the 5-0 win at Fulham.

Young was hurt while tackling Dickson Etuhu, picking up an unspecified injury that Sir Alex Ferguson has revealed will sideline him until January and Jones damaged his jaw after being elbowed by Clint Dempsey while competing for the ball in mid-air, but Ferguson did not give an estimate for his time in the treatment room.

"The tackle on Ashley Young was a very aggressive tackle and I will have to see that again," Ferguson told MUTV. "Fulham were very aggressive in the second half and Ashley Young has paid the price for that. He has got a sore one so will be out for two to three weeks."
