Manager Louis van Gaal said Rojo was held out of Sunday's match against Liverpool after picked up an injury in training.

Rojo missed out on another United clean sheet and it remains unclear when he will be able to return.

Rojo returned from a shoulder injury to start and play all 90 minutes of Manchester United's 3-0 win over Hull City on Saturday. He finished with three clearances, two fouls committed, two tackles and 89 passes.

The clean sheet was Rojo's second with Manchester United, and first since they blanked QPR back on Sept. 14. He'll look to continue his scoreless streak Tuesday against Stoke City at Old Trafford.

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal said Friday that Rojo (shoulder) could feature Saturday against Hull City.

Rojo has been sidelined since suffering a dislocated shoulder in the Manchester derby Nov. 2, but he has returned to full training and could actually play as a right-back in place of the injured Luke Shaw, who will be sidelined for up to six weeks because of an ankle injury.

Rojo (shoulder) returned to training this week, though he is unlikely to play Saturday against Hull City, The Guardian reports.

The report notes that manager Louis van Gaal prefers players to train for at least two weeks before returning, so it is possible that he could return next weekend against Southampton, with Tuesday's tie with Stoke City likely too soon.

Rojo will not require surgery on his dislocated shoulder, but he will still be sidelined for at last six weeks.

Manager Louis van Gaal added that Rojo would have been out at least 12 weeks if surgery were required. With Chris Smalling (suspension), Jonny Evans (ankle) and Phil Jones (shin) also out, van Gaal will likely choose his centrebacks among Paddy McNail, Tyler Blackett, Tom Thorpe and midfielder Michael Carrick.

Rojo is expected to be out up to six weeks after dislocating his shoulder in Sunday's match against Manchester City, reports the Daily Mail.

The dislocation stretched ligaments that normally hold the joint in place, and he could be out up to three months depending on how quickly he is able to recover. The injury is bad news for the Manchester United back line that is already missing a number of key players due to suspension and injury.

Rojo suffered a dislocated shoulder during Sunday's Manchester derby and he will miss at least next Saturday's match against Crystal Palace.

With Chris Smalling also out after picking up two yellow cards against Manchester City, it's unclear who will start in central defense against Palace, with Paddy McNair at least one option.
