Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed that both Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Scott McTominay will miss Manchester United’s Carabao Cup quarter-finals against Everton through injury.
United enter the game after a magnificent 6-2 win over Leeds. During his convincing victory, McTominay was in inspired form, scoring twice in the first three minutes to get his team off to a dream start.
However, the Scotsman was substituted in the final minutes for a suspected injury and Solskjaer has now said the hit will keep him out of Wednesday’s game, along with Wan-Bissaka, who is also struggling to stay fit.
“Those two [Wan-Bissaka and McTominay] He will definitely miss the game against Everton. Hopefully it won’t be too long. They’ll be out but other than that I think they’re all, more or less, fine, “he said (via club official website).
Solskjaer has tended to shuffle his squad in the Carabao Cup this season and hinted that this would be the case again against Everton.
“I will not give you the team! But we will make some changes. There have been some players playing in the Carabao Cup earlier in the season and some will need a break after the Leeds game. This will be a new team.”
Solskjaer went on to suggest that Bruno Fernandes would probably be rested, while Mason Greenwood and Edinson Cavani are in line to play. He also said that Jesse Lingard, who has barely appeared this season, would be involved against the Toffees.
“Jesse will be on the team. He’s been working hard in practice,” he said (via Quick)
“He has been unlucky enough to have to isolate himself several times. He has been in close contact with a COVID [positive person], not even have it himself. He’s been very unlucky to be out of training camp several times. He has been working very hard and will definitely be involved in the team on Wednesday. “
