Scott McTominay has won plenty of new plaudits after a glamourous performance for Manchester United.
The Scotland star netted twice in an action-packed three minutes at the start of the match against Leeds United as Manchester United thrashed Leeds United 6-2 at Old Trafford.
McTominay also grabbed an assist as he played a pivotal role in Manchester United resoundingly returning to the Premier League’s top four with a big victory, Scotland teammate Liam Cooper scoring one for Leeds.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has regularly selected McTominay in his squads but starts at Old Trafford have been stop-start, such is the quality in their midfield. But he’s now played five 90 minute matches in the last six games.
It’s a boost for Steve Clarke and Scotland, McTominay’s form vital if the team are to succeed at Euro 2020 next summer. That’s still a long way away right enough, and he’ll be playing in defence most likely.
Regardless, this is a positive sign as McTominay wows on the big stage, the Scotland and Manchester United man taking in plenty of praise for his all-action weekend display.

Without getting carried away it’s worth noting that McTominay was often drafted in as a centre forward in his days when he was to be found in the reserves.
If he can add goals to his game he’ll become a real asset to the squad

I like McTominay, probably my Scottish bias. For us he's been doing an excellent job as a CB, but yesterday you can see why he's needed in midfield alongside McGinn.
