Evans injury hits United

Published Add your comment

Sir Alex Ferguson expects Jonny Evans to be out of action for a fortnight after he was forced out of Manchester United's 5-0 win over Wigan with a calf injury at Old Trafford on Boxing Day.

Evans was United's only fit central defender heading into the game and failed to reappear for the second half as Dimitar Berbatov bagged a hat-trick.

And Ferguson confirmed the Northern Ireland defender will not make the New Year's Eve encounter with Blackburn, telling BBC Radio Five Live: "Jonny came off injured. He has a calf injury and will be out for two weeks."
