Prior to the injury, the Scot was an integral squad member under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer owing to Paul Pogba's continued injury layoff.
Greenwood, on the other hand makes a return after missing United's Europa League tie against Club Brugge through illness.
The youngster is expected to provide more depth upfront in the absence of Marcus Rashford who is nursing a back injury.
Both Greenwood and McTominay were pictured alongside other United stars as they checked in at the Lowry Hotel ahead of the encounter.

United are scheduled to host the Hornets on Sunday, February 23, at Old Trafford, with victory enough to fire them to fifth as they continue their push to seal a Champions League place.
