Scott McTominay is set to be fit for Manchester United’s trip to Vicarage Road on Saturday after ‘recovering well’ from illness.
The midfielder was forced to pull out of Scotland’s squad for the World Cup qualifiers against Moldova and Denmark.
Steve Clarke’s side won both matches in McTominay’s absence but United can ill-afford to be without the Scot given their perilous situation, particularly with Paul Pogba absent through injury for at least the next eight weeks.
But McTominay has suggested he will be available for the trip to Claudio Ranieri’s side, saying he’s ‘recovered well’ from his illness.
‘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 🤞🏼💙,’ McTominay wrote on Instagram.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is expected to be in charge for Saturday’s trip, despite humiliating defeats to rivals Manchester City and Liverpool in recent weeks.
United are sixth in the table and have won just one of their last five matches in the league.
