Manchester United put in an extremely bright performance over the weekend, beating Brighton & Hove Albion to make it four wins from five.
However, in typical fashion, everything didn’t go exactly according to plan for the Red Devils. In the dying embers, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was dealt a massive injury blow, with Scott McTominay having to be stretchered off the field following an innocuous-looking tackle…
Well today, we’ve been given a further update on the Scot, with The Metro reporting that United have been dealt an injury blow, as the star could be out of action for four weeks due to the ankle issue.
McTominay is to be sidelined until mid-December with suspected ankle ligament damage, and will now miss games against Sheffield United, Aston Villa, Astana, Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City – understandably, the last two, in particular, will be tough without him.
The United academy product has certainly been amongst the Red Devils’ best performers all term, and Solskjaer did admit that McTominay wasn’t 100% fit before the game against Brighton, though I guess sometimes, that’s the risk you take.
Timing-wise, the injury has been somewhat fortunate due to the international break. The first two weeks of his time sidelined will be spent when United don’t have any fixtures, so that’s a minor boost, I guess.
