McTominay, Wan-Bissaka ruled out of Everton cup game with injury

For the most part, Manchester United’s squad has been in good health this season. However, both Scott McTominay and Aaron Wan-Bissaka will miss tonight’s game against Everton with injury.

As has probably been the case over the last few seasons, the Carabao Cup presents Manchester United with a genuine opportunity at winning silverware.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are already into the last eight, though the teams left in the competition all present a genuine threat to the Old Trafford club.

Something else you have to factor is squad rotation. The Baby Faced Assassin will make changes for this one, particularly with a massive league game against Leicester City just on the horizon.

Now we know the identity of a couple of players who won’t be available at all. The key duo if Scott McTominay and Aaron Wan-Bissaka have been ruled out of tonight’s game with injury…

Here’s what Solskjaer had to say on the Mcominay and Wan-Bissaka injury issues here:

“Those two will miss the game against Everton definitely,” Solskjaer told the club website“Hopefully, it won’t be too long. They’ll be out but, apart from that, I think everyone is, more or less, okay.”

In all likelihood, these guys probably would have been made to sit this one out anyway. However, they would have both been guaranteed starters on Boxing Day against Leicester City.

With very little time to recover, I’d imagine neither will be 100% fit and raring to go for that game against Brendan Rodgers’ side, which is the bigger problem for me.

The good news is that Solskjaer seems quite hopeful they won’t be out for too long, I’d just like him to give us a little more insight into the severity of the issues. We’re going to need both to return pretty quickly as the games are now coming thick and fast.

I guess this is why you have a large squad in the modern-day game. I just doubt whether Nemanja Matic has enough left in the tank to play game-in-game-out over the next few weeks…
