Sir Alex Ferguson has admitted that Manchester United will be without Chris Smalling for up to a month, with the defender hurting his foot against Everton on Saturday.

The news will come as a blow to United, with Ashley Young also out for another fortnight, according to Ferguson, with the Scot describing the situation as ‘unfortunate’.

"Smalling has a small fracture on his foot," Ferguson said.

"I think he'll be out for a month and it's unfortunate that one.

“Ashley Young has a toe injury that is not going away so he could be out for a couple of weeks."

But the news isn’t all bad for United, with Ferguson saying that Tom Cleverley should be able to play against Otelul Galati in the Champions League.

"He's felt his ankle again. It's nothing serious, just tightness and tiredness,” Ferguson explained of when Cleverley limped off against Everton.

"It's his first real game back, although he played on Tuesday of course.

"He should be okay next week and it was an excellent performance from him in the first half."
