Arguably one of the best players in an average Manchester United side this season, midfielder Scott McTominay could be missing for Manchester United's Premier League clash against Brighton at the weekend after suffering an injury against Partizan Belgrade in the Europa League.
McTominay limped off the field with 15 minutes remaining on Thursday night as the Red Devils claimed a 3-0 win at Old Trafford.
The Scottish midfielder went down clutching his ankle following a challenge from Partizan's Aleksandar Scekic.
And now, speaking after Thursday's victory to Manchester United's official website, Red Devils boss Solskjaer admitted he didn't know whether McTominay would recover in time to face Brighton in the Premier League.
He said, "Scott is more of a concern, so let's see how he recovers in the next few days. He said he was going to be okay out on the pitch and he said ‘I’ll be fine’. He’s tough, but he had to come off. But I hope he’ll recover for Sunday, but I don’t know,” added the manager in his post-match press conference.
On being asked the injury sustained by McTominay, Solskjaer added, "Inside of his ankle. I think he went over on his ankle.”
The 22-year-old has been in his career's best form since the beginning of this season and has become Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's go-to man in the absence of Paul Pogba and he will be a big miss for United side if he is ruled out of Sunday's clash at Old Trafford.
After securing their place in the knockout stages of the Europa League, United desperately need a win over Brighton as they look to rise up the Premier League table from their current 10th place.
