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.
