The Red Devils man hadn’t featured for United since before the international break after an awkward fall against Brighton. It ruled him out the Scotland fixtures against Cyprus and Kazakhstan last month.
Against Tottenham the midfielder was placed straight back into the starting XI, coming up against his former boss Jose Mourinho’s new side.
Former Manchester United boss Mourinho has time for McTominay
After a particularly influential performance from the middle, Mourinho has singled him out for praise. Speaking on Sky Sports News (23:12, 04/12/19), he said: “McTominay’s performance was dominant, it was dominant.”
It’s great to see the Scottish midfielder back in action. He’s made 13 Premier League appearances this term as the Red Devils enjoys a great season both domestically and internationally.
McTominay is a Scotland regular now under Steve Clarke and is an almost guaranteed starter if fit for the Euro 2020 play-offs.
He certainly has an admirer in his former boss Mourinho, with the Scotsman catching the Spurs boss’ eye on his return to action.
