Manchester United’s injury problems have worsened, with midfielder Juan Mata joining defenders Chris Smalling and Phil Jones on the sidelines.

United announced on Friday that Mata, 28, has had surgery on a groin problem.

Jones, 25, injured a toe in an innocuous training-ground tackle, with reports claiming it involved Smalling.
