Evans (knock) has been ruled out of Manchester United's Premier League opener against Swansea City on Saturday.

Evans was in line to start the match as part of the three-man back-line that manager Louis van Gaal is trying out at Manchester United, but he'll have to wait at least another week before solidifying his spot.

Evans (calf) has been ruled out of Sunday's match against Everton, the club's official web site reports.

Everton have been scoring goals lately, especially at Goodison Park, so Evans didn't make for a great play this weekend anyway. That changes over the next three fixtures, with United hosting Norwich City, Sunderland and Hull City, before finishing the Premier League season at Southampton.

Evans (calf) has returned to training and may feature against Newcastle on Saturday, the club's official web site reports.

Evans has battled a few injuries this season and has appeared in only 16 matches so far. His last appearance came back on Feb. 1 against Stoke, so it would be understandable if he was rusty and eased back in.

Manager David Moyes said Friday that Evans (calf) has "a chance of playing on Sunday" against Liverpool, ESPN FC reports.

Evans was expected to miss another two weeks with his calf injury, but he has recovered quickly and could face off against the powerful Liverpool attack. His return will surely be a boost for United, although he makes for a very risky fantasy play.

Manchester United's Premier League match against Manchester City this weekend has been postponed due to the latter playing in the Capital One Cup final, so Evans will get an extra week of rest to get his calf back to fitness.
