Man United’s Scott McTominay has picked up an injury.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could have a selection headache ahead of a potentially tricky game away to Wolverhampton Wanderers this weekend.
The Manchester United manager didn’t start Scott McTominay last time out which raised some eyebrows. Well, now we know why…
United have seemingly been dealt an injury blow, as the 24-year-old picked up a problem in the aftermath of the Leeds United game, according to Sky Sports News.
The midfielder was a second-half substitute against Southampton, though the issue has seemingly worsened, with McTominay not selected for Scotland duty due to the injury.
This gives Solskjaer a major headache, particularly this weekend. Obviously, Nemanja Matic was pretty woeful against Southampton – hence why McTominay had to be risked for 30 minutes in the second half.
Seemingly, playing McTominay has only made his injury worse, which obviously isn’t ideal. The good news for United is that he’ll now have a fortnight to recover after this weekend due to the international break. That’s no good to Scotland gaffer Steve Clarke, mind.
Again, this just highlights the need for United to potentially dip their toes into the midfield transfer market. Outside of Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba, the quality-in-depth is pretty average.
Saul Niguez’s name has been mentioned today, as has Eduardo Camavinga. Either would be significant upgrades on what we have, though United’s problem remains the same. They’re looking to sell before they buy anyone else – which is proving difficult due to the high wages the United fringe players are on, coupled with the demands of the Red Devils in terms of transfer fees.
Hopefully, this McTominay issue isn’t too serious. We can only presume he’s going to be missing against Wolves this weekend, leaving Solskjaer with a major selection dilemma to ponder on.
