Scott McTominay has emerged as a potential injury doubt as Man United gear up for their game against Fulham.
Manchester United have been playing three times a week for what feels like numerous months now. Eventually, that’s going to take its toll – both mentally and physically.
For the most part, United’s players have held up pretty well, though problems were always going to occur. Recently, Marcel Sabitzer has been missing, while the likes of Alejandro Garnacho has joined Christian Eriksen and Donny van de Beek on the long-term casualty list.
This morning, the official club website confirmed another fresh injury concern for United, with one player set to be assessed ahead of tomorrow’s game at Old Trafford; Scott McTominay.
Apparently, the midfielder felt some discomfort while United were over in Seville, hence why McTominay didn’t make an appearance in that game. Instead, he remained rooted to the bench.
It goes without saying, this is less than ideal. United came into the season thin on the ground in midfield. They’ve lost Eriksen and Van de Beek in the long-term, while Casemiro is now suspended for the next four.
Right now, the only fit, senior players who play in midfield are Sabitzer and Fred. That’s less than ideal.
Thankfully, the international break should give McTominay some time to get himself fit if he’s not ready to go tomorrow – meaning we should be in a better place in a fortnight or so.
In an ideal world, McTominay can again sit on the bench and at least play some minutes if absolutely necessary. Though if there’s any doubt that McTominay could aggravate the problem and make it worse, I’d hold him out of this one.
Do you think Scott McTominay will still be at the club next season? Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below.
