MANCHESTER UNITED MANAGER Alex Ferguson admits the loss of in-form winger Antonio Valencia for up to a month is a ‘big blow’ to their title hopes.

The Ecuadorian came on as a second-half substitute during United’s 2-0 win over Ajax in Amsterdam last night. But, after he helped Javier Hernandez net the second, he was immediately replaced.

He will now definitely miss the crucial Premier League showdown with Tottenham at White Hart Lane on March 4.

“It looks like a bad one,” Ferguson told reporters afterwards.

The Dutch club visit Old Trafford next Thursday in what should be a routine night for the Premier League side, with either Lokomotiv Moscow or Athletic Bilbao waiting in the round of 16.
