Scott McTominay was one of the standout performers as Manchester United beat Tottenham 2-1 and fans have taken to Twitter to heap praises on the midfielder.
Paul Pogba’s injury, albeit unfortunate, has been a blessing in disguise for the Scotland international as he has now become an integral part of manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad.
Scott McTominay was one one of the preferred midfield option during Jose Mourinho’s reign and has retained his status even under the new leadership.
Former United midfielder Darren Fletcher said that McTominay reminded him of himself during his time at Old Trafford after he was impressed with his displays.
The following stat reveals the key role of the 22-year-old in the current Manchester United squad.
Manchester United have averaged 0.8 goals conceded per game this season when Scott McTominay has played, compared to 2.3 when the Scotsman has been absent.
So underrated. 🏴🏴🏴 pic.twitter.com/52reCVhWcB
