MANCHESTER, England (Reuters) - Manchester United striker Rasmus Hojlund is expected to be sidelined for two to three weeks with a muscle injury, the club said on Friday.

The news is a big blow to the team's quest for a top-four finish, as the 21-year-old Dane has scored in six successive Premier League games.

Hojlund has seven goals in the league after his brace helped United to a 2-1 victory at Luton Town last Sunday.

United, sixth in the standings, host Fulham on Saturday.
