The Denmark striker was substituted in the second half after holding the back of his right leg in discomfort.

United said it hoped Hojlund would be back before the end of the month.

Christian Eriksen is expected to be out for about a month after injuring his left knee in the same match.

Both players pulled out of Denmark's upcoming European Championship qualifying matches against Slovenia and Northern Ireland.

United's next game is against Everton on Nov. 26.
