London: Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson has confirmed that defender Jonny Evans will be out of action for two weeks after suffering a calf injury during the side`s 5-0 win over Wigan in the English Premier League.

Ferguson also said after the match that Evans will not make the New Year`s Eve encounter with Blackburn, Xinhua reported.

"Jonny came off injured. He has a calf injury and will be out for two weeks," said Ferguson.

"We have had a nightmare the last few days. Phil Jones and Chris Smalling have both been ill. Rio Ferdinand pulled up yesterday with a back injury and Jonny Evans has come off at half-time. It does put you under pressure," he added.

It is not pleasant at all that I had to approach the court but there was no option left for me. I am glad that I have been proved right and it has lifted my morale ahead for the Asian Games.
