Ten Hag has recently used McTominay in a more advanced role, due to his attacking prowess.
The Scottish midfielder started out as a striker in the United youth academy, before moving deeper in midfield.
McTominay’s clean ball striking helps him score a handful of goals.
During Casemiro’s absence, the 26 year old played at the head of a midfield pivot consisting of Bruno Fernandes and Marcel Sabitzer.
It gave him the freedom to make darting runs in behind the opposition defence, something at which he excels.
With Casemiro’s suspension over, it is to be seen how Ten Hag shapes his midfield.
McTominay’s absence could prove to be a significant blow for United.
The 26 year old brings steel and energy to the centre of the park, which could be useful against a technical opponent like Sevilla.
Fans will be hoping that his absence is not related to a serious injury.
