Manchester United fans react after Scott McTominay’s winner vs West Ham

A selection of Manchester United fans praised the performance of Scott McTominay after he bagged the winning goal in the FA Cup fifth round tie against West Ham United.

The Red Devils commanded two-thirds of the possession over the entire games at Old Trafford but it was a frustrating night with very few scoring chances.

McTominay came off the bench to replace Nemanja Matic in the 73rd minute and he eventually made the difference in extra-time.

The Scotland international has scored some valuable goals this term and found the back of the net in the 97th minute after a smart lay-off from Marcus Rashford in the box.

That was the only goal of the contest and ensured that United reached the last eight of the competition for the seventh season in a row.

McTominay’s seventh goal of the campaign pleased a number of United fans and here are some of the reactions on Twitter.

Twitter reactions:

The 24-year-old has generally operated in defensive and central midfield roles this term but has been given the license to push forward when United are on the attack.

McTominay played as a striker when he was graduating through the youth system and that means that he has a good eye for goal in the box.

His seven-goal tally sees him as the club’s joint third-highest goalscorer this season alongside Edinson Cavani and Anthony Martial.

He has netted more times than the midfield quartet of Paul Pogba, Fred, Nemanja Matic and Donny van de Beek (five goals combined).

McTominay will most certainly make the starting XI when the Red Devils face West Bromwich Albion in the Premier League on Sunday.
