Christian Eriksen has issued a positive injury update following Manchester United’s victory over Newcastle in the Carabao Cup final.

Manchester United beat Newcastle United 2-0 in the Carabao Cup final on Sunday with goals from Casemiro and an own-goal.

Eriksen, who suffered an ankle injury in the FA Cup win over Reading a month ago, watched from the stands as Manchester United won the Carabao Cup trophy.

“I am feeling well,” Eriksen told MUTV as he issued an update on his ankle injury.

“It is always boring to be in a boot and to be on crutches, but I have left the crutches and am now only in a boot, and next week that should be gone then finally start learning to walk. But it feels good.

“It’s been nice. Obviously, you want to play. Watching from the stands is more nerve racking than actually playing, but I kept my calm, and it is nice to see how happy they are. I am just happy that we won the game.”
