Despite an incredible transfer window that saw Cristiano Ronaldo, Jadon Sancho, Raphael Varane and Tom Heaton all move to Old Trafford, Manchester United are still light in midfield.
Scott McTominay has been missing since the Southampton draw four weeks ago, but MEN reporter Samuel Luckhurst claims the Scotland midfielder has travelled with the squad to London to face West Ham later today.

With Declan Rice and Thomas Soucek likely to start for the Hammers in central midfielder, Solskjaer could do with McTominay returning, although it may be too early for him to start the match. Plus, a few minutes off the bench would be better than nothing.
McTominay had surgery on his groin during the previous international break and he will be aiming to hit the ground running when he returns. The fact he’s back in the matchday squad is a huge bonus.
