Scott McTominay on defense for Man United vs Burnley


Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay is unlikely to be selected for Erik ten Haag.

United host Sevilla at Old Trafford in the first leg of the Europa League quarter-finals.

The Scotland international did not feature in training on Wednesday, leading to speculation that he could be the latest star to go down with injury.

“Scott McTominay has been ruled out of Manchester United’s Europa League quarter-final first leg against Sevilla with an injury,” reports the Manchester Evening News.

“McTominay did not train with the rest of the United squad on Wednesday afternoon but club sources say the injury is not serious.”

McTominay joins Marcus Rashford, Alejandro Garnacho and Luke Shaw as other senior squad members who will not play any part against Sevilla due to physical setbacks.

Earlier today, the club confirmed that Rashford will miss a number of games due to the injury sustained in the 2-0 win over Everton at the weekend.

McTominay opened the scoring for United against the Toffees.

Rashford appeared to be injured and was taken off in the final stages of the game.

Luckhurst stated that United were unclear about the nature of the Englishman’s injury and when he would return.

McTominay’s absence will be offset by the return of Casemiro. The Brazilian will be back in action for United after serving his four-match ban.

Before the international break, he was sent off for United’s goalless draw against Southampton. Casemiro missed the FA Cup matches against Fulham and the Premier League against Newcastle, Brentford and Everton.

His comeback is a big boost for Ten Hag and his team.
