Huddersfield's Aaron Mooy out up to three weeks after setback
Huddersfield midfielder Aaron Mooy has been ruled out for up to three weeks due to an injury setback, coach David Wagner has confirmed.
Australia international Mooy, a key performer in the Terriers' Premier League survival fight, has an infection in the knee he cut in last week's home win against Bournemouth.
Mooy had returned to his all-action best against Bournemouth after a dip in form in recent weeks, but missed Saturday's 2-0 FA Cup loss against Manchester United at the John Smith's Stadium.
"It's only a cut, but unfortunately there was infection when he got his stitches. This means there is a slight setback, but nothing serious," Wagner said.
"He will miss the next two games for sure, maybe Tottenham as well, but then he'll be back, so it isn't something where ligaments or muscles are damaged.
"It's only that he got an infection, he's been unlucky in this situation and will be out for two weeks, maybe three."
Wagner, as usual, has focused on the positives and said Mooy will now be able to recuperate properly after non-stop football for club and country over the last 18 months.
"I always feel sad if players are injured," Wagner said. "Especially Aaron, who has played on a very high level against Bournemouth -- back to his best.
"It's very unlucky for him, but he will come back fresh, mentally and physically as well, in two weeks and then he will help us."
