Manchester United and Scotland were given a boost on Sunday as Scott McTominay appears to be over his injury problems.

The Red Devils drew 0-0 with Chelsea in an affair that failed to live up to the hype it promised. But there was a boost for Scotland ahead of World Cup qualifying this month as McTominay returned in midfield for Manchester United.

He has missed a few games this month due to a stomach bug and then a leg problem but now appears to be firing on all cylinders again.

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer explained his 90-minute showing against Chelsea pre-match, having initially been ruled out the game: “We’re delighted to have him [McTominay] back of course. He’s important for us.

“We gave him as much time and rest as possible. He joined in [training] on Saturday and there was no reaction on Sunday morning so we went with him.”
