Manchester United fans are firmly on the Scott McTominay hype-train – so much so that some reckon he’s going to be better than Steven Gerrard.
The big shout is largely tongue-in cheek but speaks volumes of how high supporters are on the Scotland international after his incredibly consistent displays in the middle of the park.
On as a substitute, the academy product scored the winner against West Ham in extra time of the FA Cup fifth round last night.
It took his goals tally to seven for the season, with six of his strikes coming at Old Trafford and three in his last three games in all competitions.
He’s become a hugely important player for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side and already fans are joking the 24-year-old is on his way to surpassing Liverpool legend Gerrard, one of the best midfielders in Premier League history.
McTominay has scored more goals than Paul Pogba, Donny van de Beek and Fred combined this season and Solskjaer hailed his form in front of goal.
“Scott used to be a striker and I think he finishes with authority,” he said post-match.
“You see that he doesn’t mind being in those positions. He just smashed the ball into the net.”
