Raphael Varane is expected to be out for “around a month” with the hamstring injury he suffered in Manchester United’s draw with Atalanta.

Varane was forced off after 38 minutes of United’s draw in Bergamo, which saw Cristiano Ronaldo’s stoppage-time equaliser salvage a valuable point.

The 28-year-old only returned from a groin problem in last weekend’s 3-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur but is now set to miss Saturday’s derby against Manchester City at Old Trafford.

“The club confirms that Raphael sustained a hamstring injury, which is expected to keep him out of action for around a month,” a United statement said. “We’d like to wish Raphael all the best as he works on his recovery.”

Varane’s lay-off means that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will hope to have Victor Lindelof back from a minor injury that prevented him from travelling with the rest of the squad for Tuesday’s Champions League meeting.
