Erik reveals fresh doubt for Fulham tie

Saturday 18 March 2023 08:00

Scott McTominay is a doubt for Manchester United's Emirates FA Cup quarter-final with Fulham on Sunday.

The Scotland international will be assessed in advance of the 16:30 GMT kick-off, after feeling discomfort during the trip to Spain to face Real Betis in the Europa League on Thursday.

Manager Erik ten Hag did not bring him off the bench as the Reds saw out an impressive 5-1 aggregate victory, and he may not feature again in the clash with the Cottagers.

Erik discusses his plans for the home quarter-final against Fulham on Sunday afternoon.

In another update on his squad during his club media interview, Erik admitted: "As you said, we just returned. We have to see, to see the doc. I have an idea but I have to see the progress with some players.

"About the last game, that is why I didn’t bring him in, Scott McTominay, [as] he had some complaints. We have to see how that will progress in the coming hours and days."

The Reds are already without key midfielder Casemiro, who starts his four-match domestic suspension, but at least Marcel Sabitzer returned to action in Seville.

Anthony Martial looks unlikely to make his comeback and there is a question mark over Antony's participation, following illness. Alejandro Garnacho, Donny van de Beek and Christian Eriksen are also on the sidelines, as the Reds look to knock Fulham out and reach Wembley for the second time this season, in the wake of the recent Carabao Cup triumph.
