Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay on tour.

Ole hopeful of midfield boost for midweek

Sunday 01 December 2019 20:08

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is hoping his midfield options will be enhanced for Wednesday's Premier League visit of Tottenham Hotspur.

The Reds come face-to-face with former boss Jose Mourinho on the back of successive draws with newly promoted sides Sheffield United and Aston Villa.

Spurs have won each of their three matches under Mourinho's stewardship but there could be some positive team news on the horizon for the hosts.

Scott McTominay was injured during the win over Brighton last month.

Scott McTominay and Paul Pogba have both been sidelined and there is a belief that one of that pair could be available for selection for the clash against the north Londoners.

"We have still got two days and we need to look at everyone here as well," Ole commented at his post-match press conference, when asked about the midfield duo. "We have only got two days, so let's see, but, hopefully, we can see one of them on the pitch.

"They are working hard behind the scenes."

Ole has previously suggested that Scotland international McTominay, who injured his ankle in the win over Brighton before the latest Euro 2020 qualifiers, was closer to a comeback.

Pogba has been absent since the draw with Arsenal in late September.
