Scott McTominay came off during stoppage with against Leeds United holding his groin.
The Manchester United midfielder became the first player in Premier League history to score a brace inside the first three minutes of a game today, with two stunning quick-fire goals against Marcelo Bielsa’s side. He was like a man possessed in the centre of the pitch and dominated every ball that came his way.
It was sickening to see him go off injured at the end, but we can only hope it’s nothing too serious. McTominay added drive to our midfield today and there was no room for Paul Pogba to come off the bench.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is expected to comment on McTominay’s injury during his post-match press briefings.
Sky Sports gave their man of the match award to McTominay, which was announced after he had left the pitch.
