Aaron Wan-Bissaka's Injury Deals Another Blow to Erik ten Hag's Manchester United

Erik ten Hag's Manchester United side have been hit by a fresh setback as Aaron Wan-Bissaka becomes the latest player sidelined by injury during the early stages of the season.

The club confirmed that right-back Wan-Bissaka sustained the injury as he came on as a late substitute during Saturday's disappointing 3-1 defeat to Brighton at Old Trafford. This unfortunate development threatens to keep the talented defender out of action for an extended period.

In an official statement, the club expressed: "Aaron Wan-Bissaka is set for a period on the sidelines after sustaining an injury during the closing stages of Saturday’s game against Brighton & Hove Albion. The right-back came on as an 85th-minute substitute, having started the game on the bench after battling illness during the week. Further assessment will be needed to determine how long Wan-Bissaka will be out for, but initial indications suggest it will be several weeks."

Wan-Bissaka's injury adds to Manchester United's growing list of fitness concerns, particularly within their defensive ranks. Prior to this setback, key players like Luke Shaw, Raphael Varane, Lisandro Martinez, and Tyrell Malacia had already suffered injuries, leaving the team grappling with a shortage of defensive options. These recurring injury woes are posing significant challenges to Erik ten Hag's managerial aspirations at the start of the new campaign.
