Scott McTominay Suffers Knee Ligament Injury And Leaves Old Trafford On Crutches
Scott McTominay's season could be over after suffering a knee ligament injury in Manchester United's Boxing Day win.
The 23-year-old was pictured leaving Old Trafford on crutches after the 4-1 victory over Newcastle.
And manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer later confirmed McTominay's potentially serious injury blow.
After the victory, Soksjaer said that McTominay had "done his ligament in the knee".
He added: ""I don't know how bad it is. The boy has got the biggest heart of the lot. You know when you stiffen up. We'll find out tomorrow how it is."
McTominay was pulled off at half-time and replaced by Paul Pogba at Old Trafford.
