Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay was given the man of the match by fans following his performance against Arsenal last night.
The Scottish international opened the scoring with a sweetly struck shot from outside the box before half time and made a number of runs forward with the ball from midfield. Supporters on Twitter were praising the 22-year-old for his display:
The lad looks a top player in the making a felt for him tonight because a few others let him down. Always gives 100% an deserved motm love the passion he has for the club. Some players take more pride in there appearance than been able to pass a ball 5 yards an forward.

He put Pogba to shame. Top performance for the lad.

Such an underrated player for us. Plays for the badge and plays his heart out. The rest of the team should take note(minus De Gea, who also plays for the badge.)

McTominay is now deservedly a regular first-team player after an excellent start to the campaign. There were seven academy products on the field at one stage versus the Gunners and it is a good sign for the future.
However, it must be said, that apart from McTominay and flashes of brilliance from Daniel James, there was a lack of quality on display and manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be hoping that his young guns can improve in the coming weeks after a poor beginning to the season.
