Manchester United: Ralf Rangnick dealt Scott McTominay injury blow before Spurs

Manchester United: Ralf Rangnick dealt Scott McTominay injury blow before Spurs -Manchester United News

Manchester United could also be without midfield powerhouse Scott McTominay today as manager Ralf Rangnick shares some injury news before their clash with Tottenham Hotspur.

The Lowdown: Rangnick without key names…

The German head coach is already without a few key players for United’s crunch clash with the Lilywhites at Old Trafford.

Both sides are well in contention for a top four finish in the Premier League but Rangnick is set to miss the likes of Luke Shaw, who still hasn’t recovered from COVID-19 (confirmed), with reports emerging this morning that David de Gea is ill as well.

Man United’s boss, speaking to the media yesterday, has revealed that McTominay is also a major doubt for their match against Antonio Conte’s men.

The Latest: McTominay a major doubt…

As confirmed by the United manager and shared by journalist Samuel Luckhurst of The Manchester Evening News, the Scotland international is more likely than not to miss this afternoon.

“Luke Shaw will still miss out,” Rangnick said to the press.

“Until yesterday, he was still testing positive for Covid. Scotty is a question mark, he had some problems with his calf, so we have to wait and see until after training.

“Right now it’s more likely he will not be available because if we risk him tomorrow he will more likely be out for the game on Tuesday (against Atletico Madrid). With some muscular issues, more if it’s the calf, I tend to be careful.”

The Verdict: Big blow…

McTominay is a name the away side will certainly be familiar with going by their last top flight encounter in north London.

United’s midfield engine ran the show for United against ex-Spurs boss Nuno Espirito Santo’s side with former Red Devils manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer describing him as ‘man of the match’ and ‘by a mile’.

The Norwegian lauded McTominay’s ‘absolute top‘ performance against Tottenham in October last year with club legend Sammy McIlroy also in absolute awe of his display.

Speaking to Love Sport Radio (via allfootballapp), McIlroy called the 25-year-old ‘absolutely unbelievable’ for some of his displays this season and cited his ‘magnificent’ outing at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium as one of them.

Likely being without the colossal presence will certainly come as a blow for Rangnick and co.
