London: Stoke City talisman Bojan Krkic is out of his side's New Years' Day clash against Manchester United.
The in-form forward went off with a suspected hamstring injury in the victory against West Bromwich Albion Sunday, reports dailymail.co.uk.
Bojan underwent medical tests Tuesday afternoon and they have revealed minimal damage to an interior muscle between the hamstring and groin.
However, the lunchtime visit of United to the Britannia Stadium comes too soon and the former Barcelona star is expected to be out for around a week.
He will also sit out the FA Cup match against Wrexham Sunday.
Bojan has scored three Premier League goals since joining Stoke in the summer.
