Manchester United fans have heaped praise on midfielder Scott McTominay after his performances during the current campaign.
The Scotland international, 22, has become an integral part of manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad due to the injury of influential player Paul Pogba and has stepped up to the plate for the Red Devils.
Is Scott McTominay a future Manchester United captain?
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.
To substantiate the duo’s words, a statistic was revealed prior to the Tottenham game that suggested McTominay was key to the way that United play.
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
