Manchester United have confirmed that Scott McTominay won’t feature against Wolves following a groin surgery.
The Scotland international has been carrying the concern for a while, and the club have now opted for an operation.
He is expected to miss the Wolves clash this weekend and will be absent for Scotland during the international break.
McTominay could return to action against Newcastle United on September 11.
In his absence, Nemanja Matic or Donny van de Beek could partner Fred in the centre of the park on Sunday afternoon.
Van de Beek has hardly played in the Premier League since his arrival from Ajax last summer. He could start on the bench.
United have picked up four points after two games into the season. They make the trip to Midlands to face Wolves.
Wolves are without a point after two games in. They will aim to capitalise on any potential weakness in United’s midfield.
