Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag has admitted Christian Eriksen could miss Wednesday’s match with former club Tottenham as he is unsure when he will return to training.

Eriksen missed Sunday’s dismal 0-0 draw at home to Newcastle, with the Red Devils sorely missing his playmaking and ability to open games up.

Ten Hag told Danish outlet Viaplay: “We miss him when he’s not available.

“But we have a squad and another 11 players on the pitch. So then we have to construct another team and we can bring players from the bench, who are all good.

“I can’t tell [if he will face Tottenham]. I know you’re from Denmark, and want to know, and I want to express he’s played fantastic in this moment for us. In our team, he really contributes to what we are at this moment.

“I don’t know if he will be available for Wednesday but I hope [so], of course.”
