Mason Mount has been ruled out of Manchester United's next two matches through injury.

The 24-year-old sustained what the club have described as a "small complaint" during Saturday's 2-0 loss at Spurs and is not expected to return before September's international break.

That means Mount will miss this Saturday's home match against Nottingham Forest and the trip to Arsenal on Sunday 3 September.

It also makes Mount a doubt for England's UEFA Euro 2024 qualifying match against Ukraine on Saturday 9 September, and their friendly against Scotland the following Tuesday.

Since his move from Chelsea earlier this summer, Mount has started both of Man Utd's Premier League matches.

He has had a challenging start with the Red Devils, playing in a midfield that is already facing scrutiny.

Man Utd struggled in their 1-0 home win over Wolverhampton Wanderers on the opening weekend, with Wolves repeatedly threatening on the counter-attack and racking up 23 shots, the second-most by a visiting team to Old Trafford in the Premier League since 2003/04.

Mount was substituted after 68 minutes in that match, and was then unable to make an impact in the defeat to Spurs.
