Man United receive double injury update as INEOS receive good news



| Last Updated:


Manchester United have received a double injury update on Scott McTominay and Harry Amass ahead of their Premier League clash against Bournemouth this weekend.

United have had an underwhelming campaign this term, currently sitting sixth in the Premier League and having been knocked out of the Champions League and Carabao Cup.

One of the primary reasons for Erik ten Hag’s side’s poor performance this term has been the unprecedented injury crisis at the club.

The Reds have sustained over 50 different cases of illness or injury this season, including multiple setbacks for the likes of Lisandro Martinez, Casemiro, Rasmus Højlund and Casemiro.

This injury crisis has, in fact, meant that Ten Hag has only been able to choose the same starting XI four times in 43 different matches this season.

The latest injury news, as per MailOnline, is that Scott McTominay will be out of action for around two to three weeks after hyperextending his knee against Chelsea last weekend.

McTominay, 27, missed out on United’s last game for this reason. Kobbie Mainoo and Bruno Fernandes started alongside Casemiro.

The report also added that youngster Harry Amass, who was named on the bench for United’s 2-2 draw against Liverpool on Sunday, went down in stoppage time during an under-21s game against Brighton this week after being caught late.

Thankfully, it was added that whilst Amass limped through to the finish of the game, he looked more comfortable as walking out of Leigh Sports Village Stadium, and it seems that the injury is nothing of concern.

Meanwhile, Sir Jim Ratcliffe and INEOS have received a boost as it seems that Donny van de Beek’s chances at Eintracht Frankfurt are not over, despite the Dutchman having an underwhelming loan spell at the Bundesliga club thus far.

The aforementioned report stated that the prospect of him remaining there is not completely off the table.

They suggested that sources close to the Bundesliga side insist that no decision has been made on whether to make Van de Beek’s loan permanent, and any such discussions have been placed on hold until the end of the season.

Frankfurt have a £10.3m option to buy clause in their loan contract for Van de Beek, and while there is an outside doubt over whether they will trigger this clause, MailOnline stresses that it is not a foregone conclusion that he will return to Old Trafford.
