Manchester United midfielder Emma Watson faces a spell on the sidelines after the club confirmed she suffered a serious knee injury while on international duty.

The 17-year-old has yet to feature for United since joining the Women's Super League side from Rangers in the summer.

Watson, who has scored three goals in four senior caps for Scotland, is the latest player in the women's game to sustain an ACL injury.

"Manchester United can today confirm that midfielder Emma Watson suffered an ACL injury while on international duty with Scotland," the club announced in a statement.

"The 17-year-old is currently undergoing treatment and rehabilitation at Carrington with the support of our medical teams.

"Everyone at Manchester United will be working closely with Emma to support her recovery."
