The Scotland international’s absence marks the 56th case of injury or illness that has led to a United star missing a game.

“To confirm, Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay has been ruled out of today’s game due to injury,” Simon Stone reported for BBC Sport.

It goes without saying that nothing is simple or predictable when it comes to facing our bitter league rivals.

That’s not to suggest we should be going into this gunning for anything other than an additional three points on the board beyond the 90 minutes.

With further injuries hitting the hosts, we have to be looking to capitalise in what could be a make or break tie in the context of the title race.
