Manchester United hit with devastating injury blow after Burnley draw

Manchester United have been dealt an injury blow to Scottish midfielder Scott McTominay after he was forced off on Saturday afternoon.

The Red Devils were held to a disappointing 1-1 draw at home to relegation-battling Burnley on Saturday afternoon in a performance which unfortunately sums up their season so far.

The Clarets looked like the better team in the first half and if not for some great saves from goalkeeper Andre Onana, they could’ve gone into the break at least one goal up.

But Manchester United held firm and got their reward when Antony grabbed his first goal of the season after making an incisive run in behind Burnley’s defence.

However, Onana turned from hero to villain when he conceded a penalty shortly after allowing the visitors to get back level after dispatching from the spot.

There is even more bad news for United, unfortunately, as McTominay picked up a knock in injury time and was forced off after only being substituted on in the 65th minute.

Speaking after the game, Erik ten Hag revealed that he is a doubt to feature in their next league clash against Crystal Palace.

“We have to assess this, to set the diagnosis.” He told the Manchester United Official Website.

“I don’t know in this moment to return [against Crystal Palace next month], I think it’s a little bit too quick turnaround.”
