Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay has returned to training ahead of tonight’s game against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League.
The Scottish international was missing for the trip to Southampton, as well as the 4-1 win against Istanbul Basaksehir last week, but he should be back in the matchday squad this evening.
McTominay was superb in the reverse fixture in Paris back in October and supporters on Twitter are hoping the 23-year-old will be available to start at Old Trafford:
He plays, we win.

Considering the midfielder has only had one training session since returning to fitness, it would be a surprise if he starts versus PSG, but manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will make the decision based on the player’s fitness.
McTominay and Fred played a pivotal role as holding midfielders in the first match, and Solskjaer may well be tempted to pair them up once again and possibly sacrifice some creativity by moving Donny van de Beek to the bench. We shall have to wait and see what the United boss decides.
