Scott McTominay’s habit of scoring important goals continued last night, as he scored the only goal of the game in Manchester United’s FA Cup tie against West Ham.

The Scotland international didn’t start the game, he came on as a second-half substitute. However, that didn’t stop him from having a major impact on the match. With the game in extra time after a goalless 90 minutes, McTominay stepped up and became the hero.

A cool finish

The ball broke to the 24-year-old on the edge of the penalty area during a Manchester United attack and his low finish went into the back of the net.

It was a cool finish that a striker would be proud of. More importantly, it booked United’s place in the last eight of the FA Cup. They have a real chance of winning the competition now.

WAYNE ROONEY TO EVERTON IS A JOKE.

Now, McTominay isn’t primarily in the Manchester United side to score goals. However, he has found the back of the net on a regular basis this season.

On course for double figures

His goal on Tuesday night was his third goal in three game, and his seventh of the season overall. He must be confident of scoring double figures before the end of the season, which would be a remarkable achievement for the player.

Unsurprisingly, some Manchester United fans on social media were delighted with McTominay’s performance and goal.

One fan even claimed that he could well become a Manchester United great in the future. Only time will tell on that front, but he has been a very important player this season.

Here are some of the best reactions from Twitter to McTominay’s goal and performance:
