Man Utd handed double injury blow ahead of Everton clash

By | December 22, 2020

Manchester United head-coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed that Scott McTominay and Luke Shaw are both doubts for Wednesday’s EFL Cup quarter-final game with Everton.

The two players both started for the 20-times English champions ‘ 6-2 thrashing of Leeds United on Sunday afternoon, with McTominay scored a brace in first two minutes of the game.

However, the two players did not come out of that victory unscathed, and the Red Devils boss has admitted that his team will be sweating over the fitnesses of left-back Luke Shaw and McTominay for their midweek trip to Goodison Park.

When asked by reporters if the pair are doubtful for Wednesday, Solskjaer said: “Yeah, I would think so. Luke has been ill for a few days and was only passed fit this morning. He didn’t train yesterday.

“Scott, it seemed like a groin issue. I don’t know. Hopefully, it won’t be too long as he’s not had any muscle injuries before. But I don’t know how quickly he will recover.”

The Red Devils drubbing of the Whites moved them up to third in the Premier League standings, with Solskjaer’s men level on points with Everton before they lock horns in the EFL Cup.
