Scott McTominay’s Stats Against Barcelona Last Night Were Seriously Impressive

Scott McTominay’s stats against Barcelona last night were seriously impressive.

The Manchester United midfielder got the nod from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer from the start after impressing in their victory away at Paris Saint-Germain in the last round.

But his inclusion at home to Barcelona in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final tie may have surprised some considering he’s been in and out of the team domestically.

Yet it turned out to be the right decision from Solskjaer as McTominay put in a man of the match performance.

That’s despite Barcelona managing to leave Old Trafford with a 1-0 first-leg lead courtesy of Luke Shaw’s own goal.

There are a few positives to take from the night, but McTominay’s display is the biggest of those – just look at his numbers:

What his stats don’t include is this nasty move on Arturo Vidal in the second half:

McTominay has really emerged as one of United’s best young players since Solskjaer became manager and it bodes well for club and country going forward if he can continue this form.

He’s a full Scotland international now and will be expected to make a bigger impact for them going forward in their Euro 2020 qualifying campaign.
