Manchester United have been dealt a huge blow ahead of the busy festive schedule after midfielder Scott McTominay picked a knee injury during the 4-1 win over Newcastle United on Thursday night at Old Trafford.
The youngster was replaced at halftime by Paul Pogba after a first-half clash with Newcastle midfielder Sean Longstaff in the middle of the park left his knee damaged he, however, managed to finish the first 45 minutes before his hooking off.
He was pictured leaving Old Trafford in crutches after the game with coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirming that the Scottish midfielder has a knee problem that will be evaluated further.
“He’s done his ligament in his knee, probably. We don’t know how bad it is, so let’s see. The boy has got the biggest heart of the lot. He played until half-time but we know when they stiffen up after. We’ll have to find out tomorrow, how he is,” he said.
The Norwegian tactician further revealed that the player is likely to miss Saturday action against Burnley.
“You see the attitude of the kid, of everyone, at the beginning of the game. I’m not sure if he’ll be ready for Saturday [against Burnley]. Probably not, but we’ve seen him recover before.”
