Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay has had an excellent season for the Red Devils and he was superb in the 2-1 win over Manchester City at the weekend.
The Scottish international was a force to be reckoned with in the middle of the park, authoritative on the ball and strong in the tackle, providing the perfect shield for the back four at the Etihad Stadium.
Fans on Twitter have been praising McTominay following his recent form:

The 23-year-old’s absence was felt when he was sidelined with an ankle injury for the draws against Sheffield United and Aston Villa.
It is no coincidence that the team looked stronger versus Tottenham and City following McTominay’s return to the starting eleven. It shows you what an important player that he has become for the side despite his relative lack of games. The Scot could well be a mainstay of United’s midfield for years to come.
