Manchester United receive huge injury boost ahead of Watford clash

Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay has claimed that he has ‘recovered well’ from an illness that ruled him out of the international break.

The midfielder took to Instagram to share an update to his fans regarding his health and this came prior to Scotland’s 2-0 win over Denmark in the World Cup Qualifiers.

McTominay said: “Tough one to take not being available to help the boys this past week through not being well but I’ve recovered well and just want to wish the squad the best of luck for tonight.”

This would come down as huge news for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who is already set on facing Watford away from home this weekend without key player Paul Pogba due to an injury issue and suspension.

Manchester United have been sceptical this season, which has put Solskjaer’s job in the balance.

United and the Norwegian boss are eager to get the club back in the right direction and Solskjaer would surely be pleased with McTominay’s health update.

Now, the 24-year-old midfielder will be in contention to feature against Watford this weekend in the Premier League.

McTominay was one of the Man United players, who reported to training on November 15.

Before the international break, Manchester United lost 2-0 at home to City after two defensive errors.
