Manchester United defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka has had the ban for his red card against Young Boys in the Champions League extended to two matches by a UEFA disciplinary panel.

Wan-Bissaka received a straight red card in the 35th minute of his side's shock loss earlier this month after a foul on Christopher Martins Pereira.

The full-back's mandatory one-match ban has been increased for "rough play", meaning he will miss next month's home clash with Atalanta in addition to Wednesday night's game against Villarreal.

The extension of Wan-Bissaka's suspension adds to United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's concerns, with fellow defenders Harry Maguire and Luke Shaw battling injury.

Maguire has been ruled out of Wednesday's clash with Villareal with a calf injury, while Shaw is a doubt for the match but would appear likely to be available for Saturday's Premier League match against Everton.

Diogo Dalot appears most likely to replace Wan-Bissaka against Villarreal and Atalanta, with the Portuguese full-back set to make his second start of the season.

United are looking to end a run of three defeats in four matches in all competitions, with Saturday's Old Trafford defeat to Aston Villa the latest in a streak of unconvincing performances.
