Man Utd to be handed major injury boost for Tottenham clash but key man misses out
Scott McTominay is expected to be fit for Manchester United’s clash with Tottenham on Wednesday night but Paul Pogba will once again miss out
Scott McTominay is expected to be fit for Manchester United’s clash with Tottenham on Wednesday night but Paul Pogba will once again miss out, according to the Manchester Evening News.
McTominay has been on the sidelines since suffering an ankle injury during the 3-1 victory over Brighton last month and he’s been forced to sit out United’s recent games with Sheffield United, Astana and Aston Villa.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said at his press conference late last week that he was hoping the Scottish international would be available again soon and the Manchester Evening News says McTominay is expected to be in contention to face Tottenham on Wednesday night.
The news will come as a major boost to Solskjaer as the Man Utd coach has been low on options in midfield recently with Pogba and Nemanja Matic also on the sidelines with niggling injuries.
It’s not all positive news though as the M.E.N says Pogba won’t be available for the visit of Spurs to Old Trafford as he continues to work his way back to full fitness from a troublesome ankle issue.
The French international originally sustained the injury during the draw with Southampton in August and hasn’t featured for United since the 1-1 draw with Arsenal way back on September 30th.
The 26-year-old is back at Carrington undertaking the final stages of his recovery and the M.E.N says Pogba is targetting his comeback in the Manchester derby against City next weekend.
It will make a huge difference to the Man Utd team once McTominay and Pogba are back in the side and it’s a big boost for Solskjaer to have two of his key players ready to return as we head into the hectic festive period.
