Man Utd striker Javier Hernandez expected to be sidelined for up to a month after injuring ankle

BIRMINGHAM, United Kingdom (AFP) - Sir Alex Ferguson revealed Mexico international Javier Hernandez could miss the next month after suffering an ankle injury at Villa Park. Manchester United striker Hernandez tore ligaments in his ankle and was stretchered off early in the first half of the 1-0 victory over Aston Villa. Hernandez collapsed on the turf after landing awkwardly, with no Villa player near him, and was in obvious pain when he was helped off the field by United's medical staff. And Ferguson admitted the 23-year-old is unlikely to play again this year. 'Javier has torn ligaments in his ankle and will be out for three to four weeks,' said the United manager. 'It's a bad time for us but it's just as well that we've got a strong squad.' Ferguson will also be without Michael Carrick for the Champions League tie with FC Basel on Wednesday as the midfielder is suspended.
