Erik ten Hag is already faced with a lengthy injury list, one that includes Luke Shaw and Lisandro Martinez at the back, and Casemiro and Christian Eriksen in midfield.
There has been little in the way of good news for the United boss during the international break either, as two more of his first-team stars picked up issues.
“We just thought given the nature of the collision and it was a chance to get Cole in to the game. I haven’t assessed too much but I think he was okay when he came off.”
Andre Onana, meanwhile, was in action for Cameroon as they faced Mauritius in a qualifying match for the 2026 World Cup. The goalkeeper started the match but came off with ten minutes remaining, trudging off after receiving treatment from the medical staff.
