Manchester United suffered a double injury blow with Phil Jones and Ashley Young both facing spells on the sidelines after their 5-0 win at Fulham.

Young was hurt while tackling Dickson Etuhu, picking up an unspecified injury that Sir Alex Ferguson has revealed will sideline him until January.

Jones damaged his jaw after being elbowed by Clint Dempsey while competing for the ball in mid-air, but Ferguson did not give an estimate for his time in the treatment room.

"The tackle on Ashley Young was a very aggressive tackle and I will have to see that again," Ferguson told MUTV.

"Fulham were very aggressive in the second half and Ashley Young has paid the price for that. He has got a sore one so will be out for two to three weeks.

"On Phil Jones it was an elbow from Dempsey, but I don't think it was intentional. But he caught him with an elbow.

"We are sending him for an X-ray tomorrow and it doesn't look great. We are picking up injuries at the moment."
