It was great day for McTominay and his second Premier League goal of the campaign has significant meaning.

McTominay is a Premier League history maker

His strike was the 2000th goal Manchester United have scored in the Premier League. They are the first side to reach such a landmark. McTominay’s strike was the goal to seal that historic moment and it wasn’t half bad.

He only needed one touch to beat Tim Krul in the Canary net, curling a fine effort into the bottom corner from an Andreas Pereira cross.

McTominay is a Red Devils mainstay, with his Carrow Road appearance his 12th of the season. He has also became an integral part of the Scotland midfield in recent times with 12 caps to his name so far.

After his crowning moment against Norwich, McTominay joins fellow Scotsmen like Sir Alex Ferguson, Sir Matt Busby and Denis Law in the Old Trafford history books.
