Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says Scott McTominay and Nemanja Matic could feature against Tottenham Hotspur in Wednesday’s Premier League game after being sidelined with injury.
McTominay has missed United’s last three games since the international break after picking up an issue against Brighton and Hove Albion.
For Matic, he has not featured since the goalless draw with AZ Alkmaar in early October.
And in his pre-match press conference on Tuesday morning, Solskjaer said both players are in line to face Spurs.
“You know I don’t want to talk about these injuries we’ve had, but of course when you get Scott back, when you get Paul back… we have been light in midfield because we had Scott and Nemanja and Paul out for such a long time and that’s affected us,”Solskjaer told reporters.
“Scott and Nemanja are touch-and-go, so let’s get this today’s training session out of the way. We’ve got more games than this one, so I can’t just look at one game. We’ve got to look at the long term.”
The Norwegian coach however stated that Paul Pogba will not be fit in time to face Spurs.
“No. Paul’s not ready, no. So, he’s still a bit away, but he’s working hard, so let’s see.
“He’s out [training] on the grass, so let’s see how long it will take.”11 BUSINESS NUGGETS FROM SUPER EAGLES BRONZE MEDAL TRIUMPH. The content of this ebook will propel you above your competition. DOWNLOAD NOW!!!
