Manchester United Football Club have been seriously struggling with injuries under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer – perhaps it’s down to this new, high-energy game plan the club are looking at playing.
The latest to fall foul of time out on the treatment table is Scott McTominay. The star midfielder picked up an ankle problem in the dying embers of the Red Devils’ game against Brighton & Hove Albion.
Anyway, earlier today, we covered a story from The Metro in which it was claimed that the United academy graduate was set to be sidelined for four weeks.
Well now we’ve been given a contrasting report and it comes from Sky Sports News. They state that United are ‘unsure’ as to when the 22-year-old will return from injury, though the Scotland international is a doubt for the Reds’ next game against Sheffield United.
In terms of what we know, McTominay will not feature for his country over the international break, while there is “hope that, with treatment, the 22-year-old will be available again soon”…
What’s positive is that McTominay actually joined up with the Scotland squad but was sent home. That tells me that the midfielder was at least thinking about playing some part, so that’s good news, right?
He’s also only considered a doubt for the game against Sheffield United in under two weeks, meaning he hasn’t been completely ruled out just yet…
I guess we’ll learn more in a week or so, as Solskajer meets the media for his usual pre-match press conference.
