Scotland were given a boost as Manchester United brought Scott McTominay back into the fold away to Chelsea this weekend.

The midfielder has been a key player for club and country this season. He has scored seven goals for Manchester United this term but couldn’t add to his total in the 0-0 draw in London, where VAR controversy dominated the talking points again.

For McTominay, he made it through 90 minutes which will please Steve Clarke ahead of the World Cup qualifiers next month. The midfielder was substituted after 60 minutes in the first leg of Manchester United’s Europa League tie with Real Sociedad last week.

He then missed the next two matches but returned to the XI away to Chelsea. McTominay has also missed matches through a stomach bug this month but now appears to be back to full health.

Fans of Manchester United have rated McTominay’s display against the Blues. The midfielder will be key to Steve Clarke’s plans in World Cup qualifying, where matches against Austria, Israel and Faroe Island will start the campaign.
