McTominay is expected to be assessed when he returns to Manchester, ahead of United's Premier League clash with Swansea City on Saturday.

The midfielder has emerged as a key part of Jose Mourinho's first team in the 2017-18 campaign having his made his debut for the club against Arsenal the season before.

He has often been preferred to Paul Pogba in midfield, and has made 18 appearances in all competitions, including the 2-0 win over Brighton in the FA Cup quarter-final last time out.

Despite being born in England, McTominay opted to play for Scotland at international level, with Craig Brown having suggested that Mourinho may have attempted to dissuade the midfielder from representing the Three Lions.

United are back in action against Swansea City in the Premier League on Saturday although it remains to be seen if McTominay will be available for selection.
