Scott McTominay is set to be fit Manchester United’s trip to Vicarage Road on Saturday after ‘recovering well’ after illness.

The midfielder was forced to withdraw from Scotland’s squad for the World Cup qualifiers against Moldova and Denmark.

Steve Clarke’s team won both games in McTominay’s absence, but United can ill afford to do without the Scots given their dangerous situation, especially with Paul Pogba absent due to injury for at least the next eight weeks.

But McTominay has suggested he will be available for the trip to Claudio Ranieri’s side, saying he has ‘recovered well’ from his illness.

“Hard to take not being available to help the boys in the last week through not being healthy, but I have recovered well and just want to wish the team good luck tonight 🤞🏼💙,” McTominay wrote on Instagram.

Ole Gunnar Solskjær is expected to be responsible for Saturday’s trip despite humiliating defeats to rivals Manchester City and Liverpool in recent weeks.

United are sixth in the table and have only won one of their last five matches in the league.
