A 73rd-minute substitution secured Manchester United a spot in the next round of the FA Cup. Scott Mctominay has now scored in all of Manchester United’s last 3 games, with the last 2 being significant goals.
Mctominay started his football career as a Center forward but later converted into a Central Midfielder. Since his conversion, the Scottish man has played from the midfield, directing the play for his Manchester United and Sottish teammates.
Ironically, McTominay was dropped out of the team in his early days because of his small size. Now, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer uses him because of his big and dominating size as a deep playing Central Midfielder.
Manchester United is currently 2nd in the English Premier League Table, with 45 points. However, the squad is struggling with the number 9 position. Martial is out of form, with their New signing, Cavani not banging in expected goals.
Martial has 4 goals in the EPL, the same as Scott Mctominay. Martial has managed only 2 goals in 10 appearances for Manchester United this year, while McTominay has the back of the net 4 times in 10 matches this year.
McTominay has undoubtedly secured his spot in the first 11 for Manchester United but can he play higher upfield? Yes, he has shown skill and aptitude, and hopefully, OGS will do the right thing.
