Scott McTominay could make a quicker return from injury than first anticipated. 

The Scotland star was withdrawn late on during Manchester United's 1-1 Premier League draw with Burnley last weekend. 

That setback resulted in suggestions the 27-year-old could be set for an extended spell on the sidelines and even miss Euro 2024. 

However, United manager Erik ten Hag has confirmed that McTominay, who suffered a hyperextension in his knee and hasn't trained at all this week, may feature against Crystal Palace on Monday night.

Asked to provide an injury update, the Red Devils boss said: "Scott didn't train so far this week but I expect him back in training on Saturday and we have to see if he's 100 percent available or for a part of the game.

“After the (Burnley) game, we had an issue with Bruno (Fernandes). He is a doubt for Monday, we all know Bruno, never rule him out for any game. He will do his best to be available.

“Jonny Evans returned today for team training. Tomorrow we are off and then two days until the game. (Anthony) Martial was partly in team training.”
