Ole Gunnar Solskjaer delivers injury update on Man United midfield duo
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is hopeful that Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay are closing in on returns from injury for Man United
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is hopeful that at least one of Paul Pogba or Scott McTominay will be fit to feature when Manchester United host Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday night.
The midfield duo have both been out injured in recent weeks and they sat out the 2-2 draw with Aston Villa in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.
McTominay has been out injured since picking up a problem during the win over Brighton and Hove Albion last month, while Pogba has not featured since the draw against Arsenal back at the end of September.
Solskjaer was quizzed about the fitness of the midfield duo and the Manchester United boss seemed to indicate that at least one of them could be fit for the clash against Spurs.
Speaking at his news conference after Sunday’s draw, Solskjaer said when asked about the duo: “We have still got two days and we need to look at everyone here as well.
“We have only got two days, so let’s see, but, hopefully, we can see one of them on the pitch.
”They are working hard behind the scenes.“
Manchester United are preparing to welcome Jose Mourinho back to Old Trafford as the Spurs manager takes the north London side up to face his former club.
Mourinho will return to the Old Trafford dugout for the first time since being sacked by Manchester United almost exactly a year ago.
The Portuguese coach has led Spurs to three wins from his first three games in charge of the Lilywhites as they prepare to take on their top-four rivals at Old Trafford this week.
