Manchester United may have made it four wins in five at Old Trafford yesterday – though the treatment table curse continues for the Old Trafford outfit.
This time, it’s the turn of Scott McTominay, who went into the game nursing a problem. United were dealt an injury blow in the dying embers of the fixture, with the key star stretchered off during the victory, the Mirror on Sunday reports.
The 22-year-old had been enjoying a simply sensational start to the season, and for me, he’s amongst the early front-runners for the Player of the Season award. Now, we wait to see how serious the problem is…
“He went over on his ankle and it looked like a painful one,” Solskjaer said per The Mirror.
“He’s in for a scan tomorrow so it could be a couple of weeks out but we hope not. He wasn’t rolling around so hopefully it won’t be too serious.”
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer seems somewhat optimistic which has to be viewed as a positive, though the Red Devils have been given somewhat of a lucky break – as United now don’t play for a fortnight due to international football taking centre stage.
This gives the Scotland international a couple of weeks to get right ahead of a huge away game against Sheffield United. Right now, though, I personally feel we’ll be without McTominay for the foreseeable future. This is why you have a squad and it’s time for Nemanja Matic to let his feet do the talking.
Get well soon, Scotty! We need you!
