Scott McTominay will reportedly be out injured for up to eight weeks after the Manchester United midfielder picked up a knee injury on Boxing Day.
The Scotland international had to come off in their 4-1 win against Newcastle at Old Trafford and was replaced by Paul Pogba.
He then missed their match with Burnley at Turf Moor two days later.
After the Red Devils’ win against Burnley, Ole Gunner Solskjaer confirmed they expect McTominay to be out for a number of weeks.
He said: “I wouldn’t expect him to be back within a few weeks. I don’t think we’ll see him, it’ll be more than that. But he’s always proved before if you give him three weeks he’s back in two.”
McTominay himself posted an update on his Instagram page but did not reveal how long he will be out for.
“A set back is a chance to come back stronger than ever, doing my best to be back on the pitch as soon as possible,” the 23-year-old wrote. “Positive mind & keep the hard work going, thank you to everyone for the good wishes.”
The midfielder has stepped up for United this season in the absence of Paul Pogba, who has made just eight appearances.
The France World Cup winner missed the game against Burnley after complaining he ‘didn’t feel right’ following a three month lay-off with an ankle injury.
