Manchester United are set to be without the key midfielder for Saturday's Premier League showdown against Arsenal

Manchester United midfielder Nemanja Matic is set to miss Saturday's crunch Premier League clash at Arsenal after suffering an injury against Watford.

The Serbian international was substituted in the 54th minute due to a muscle injury.


Boss Jose Mourinho will wait to assess the damage but is likely to be without Matic for the trip to the Emirates.

"Matic is injured, I don't know how badly," said United manager Mourinho after their 4-2 win over Watford.

"For Matic to tell me he wants to be replaced, he does not do that if it is nothing important. It is muscular."



Mourinho's men closed the gap behind title race leaders Manchester City to five points after their impressive victory at Vicarage Road.

An Ashley Young double and goals from Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard secured the precious away win.

But Watford managed to grab two goals and Mourinho believes Matic's premature departure saw his side lose 'stability'.

He said: "We lost stability when Nemanja Matic had to come out.


"But the important thing is the three points."

If Matic misses this weekend's trip to the Emirates Stadium, Mourinho will hope the 29-year-old, who he bought from Chelsea earlier this summer, will return for their next Premier League game at Old Trafford against City on December 10,
