Manchester United full-back Patrice Evra will be out of action for up to three weeks with a foot injury.

The Frenchman sustained the injury in the Red Devils 3-0 win over Chelsea on the weekend and will now miss at least three league matches along with the Carling Cup semi-final against Derby and the FA Cup fourth-round clash with Tottenham.

The injury to Evra compounds that of key defender Rio Ferdinand who is still struggling with a back problem.
