Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has confirmed Scott McTominay will start against Barcelona next week, despite dropping the emerging midfielder for Saturday’s Premier League match against West Ham.
The 22-year-old earned rave reviews for his performance during Wednesday’s 1-0 defeat.
Explaining McTominay’s absence, Solskajer told Sky Sports:
“He’s a young boy and that mental and physical output on Wednesday was a lot and he’ll be needed on Tuesday.
“He needed a break today.”
Marcus Rashford, whose form has dipped slightly in recent weeks following several niggling injuries, also dropped to the bench and Solskjaer added: “Rashy has been injured and ill and it was about him working hard (against Barcelona).”
