Sabitzer, who joined on loan from Bayern Munich in January, missed the 2-0 victory against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday with a knee complaint. It has since been communicated that the Austrian has suffered a meniscal injury.
A Red Devils club statement read: “Marcel has played an important role in the second half of our 2022/23 campaign, racking up 18 appearances and scoring three times, a cheeky backheel against Fulham in the Emirates FA Cup quarter-final and a double in the Europa League last-eight first leg clash with Sevilla.
“The 29-year-old has also secured a Carabao Cup winner’s medal, after featuring in February’s triumph over Newcastle United, and converted one of the penalties during the shootout success against Brighton & Hove Albion in the FA Cup semi-final.
“Everyone at the club is disappointed to lose Marcel’s services, as the Reds chase a strong finish to the season in the Premier League and FA Cup, and we are grateful for his contribution to our progress so far.”
Despite the Sabitzer blow, Erik ten Hag has been handed an injury boost with Rashford spotted in training ahead of facing Bournemouth on Saturday.
Fifth place Liverpool are one point behind Man United and Newcastle United in the race for Champions League qualification after putting together a seven-game winning streak.
