Solskjaer provides injury update on Scott McTominay after Brighton victory

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is sweating on the fitness of Scott McTominay after the midfielder was forced off injured in the closing stages of Manchester United’s victory over Brighton.

McTominay was a doubt for today’s game after hobbling off injured in Thursday night’s Europa League game against Partizan Belgrade but was cleared to play.

The 22-year-old was again impressive alongside Fred in midfield and had a hand in United’s second goal which came from a scramble inside the box.

Solskjaer has become reliant on McTominay as an essential part of his midfield in Paul Pogba’s absence and the youngster has began to develop a partnership with Fred.

But there will now be huge concern amongst fans about his fitness with Solskjaer confirming in his post-match press conference that he went over on his ankle.

We hope McTominay can recover for the game away to be Sheffield United in a fortnight but Solskjaer may have to turn to Nemanja Matic if he does not recover.
