Manchester United fans couldn’t have been happier with Scott McTominay‘s performance vs Chelsea in the Premier League at Old Trafford.
The academy product started in one of the club’s most crucial clashes this season and certainly repaid his manager’s faith in full.
McTominay has recently found himself to be a regular name on the team sheet and it’s a credit to him that’s managed to do so at one of the biggest clubs in England.
The youngster has slowly made a name for hisself and neutrals are definitely not going to forget him anytime soon given how he played vs the Blues.
United’s come from behind win could potentially spark a perfectly timed winning run and for Scott himself, he could take this game in his strike and continue impressing.

Scott Mctominay bossed the midfield defensively and sent Eden Hazard to the bench whilst Jose Mourinho sends on Jesse Lingard to score the winner.
Players made by ManUtd. Jose Mourinho carrying on the tradition of ManUtd.

Lot to be positive about
The forward three looked good. Still room to improve
Midfield 3 proved it can work
McTominay stepped up in a big game, Pogba was ridiculous. Best he’s played I think
We played to our strengths. Gives me some confidence for the big games coming up 🇾🇪 pic.twitter.com/nH2EFFU6ve

The Red Devils put in one hell of a shift against Antonio Conte’s men and followed Jose Mourinho‘s instructions faithfully.
More importantly, the instructions worked as the 2-1 win indicates and the tenacious midfielder’s performance had a lot to do with that.
Scott McTominay had a bit of a reputation of playing too safe and not truly influencing matches but he proved he could do so when called upon.
Given the task to man mark Chelsea’s most dangerous man in Eden Hazard, the youngster did not shrink and instead played so well that the Chelsea man was substituted.
