Man United fans react to outstanding Scott McTominay display vs Leeds Utd

We’ve seen some midfield clinics at Old Trafford over the years. Scott McTominay vs Leeds United deserves to be right up there with them.

Two goals in three minutes from Scotty Mac sent Manchester United on their way. The Lancaster-born-midfielder immediately set the tempo with his running, physicality and clinical finishing. This boy just loves the big games, hey?

In the build-up, all the talk was about how great Kalvin Phillips has been for Leeds this season. McTominay wasn’t going to give the Englishman any room to breathe at all, so much so that the Leeds midfielder was hooked at half-time. Talk about impact from Scotty Mac.

It wasn’t just the goals that were impressive, either. It was a performance jam-packed with overall quality. McTominay always picked the right pass, knew when to press and when to burst forward. We’re watching a very talented player improve right before our eyes – and it was an absolute pleasure watching him yesterday.

I was particularly pleased because McTominay is often an easy target amongst United fans when the team plays badly. Yesterday highlighted just how crucial he is to this squad. When he’s on form like that, there aren’t many better in the Premier League at what he does.

The only concern is the fact that McTominay did pick up an injury. The severity of which isn’t known at this point, though groin problems can often be somewhat serious. Let’s hope it’s nothing too major and he’s back out on the field in the not too distant future.

As you’d imagine, United fans would heap the praise on the 24-year-old who bossed the game vs Leeds. We’ve compiled our favourite tweets below.
