Southampton will be without key players Nathan Redmond, Moussa Djenepo and Michael Obafemi after the trio suffered injuries in their 1-0 League Cup win over Fulham, manager Ralph Hasenhüttl said on Thursday.
Redmond appeared to fall awkwardly on his ankle during the second half at Craven Cottage on Tuesday and needed to be helped off the pitch by medical staff.
Hasenhüttl confirmed Redmond, who played every league game last season and was involved in 10 goals, would be sidelined for at least a couple of weeks.
“At the moment, it looks like (Redmond) will be out for two-three weeks,” Hasenhüttl told reporters ahead of Saturday’s Premier League match against Manchester United.
“He could be out longer and he has to wear a protective boot for the next 10 days, but it (his recovery) could be quicker.
