Owen Hargreaves declared: "I love him. Good luck getting this guy out of the team.

"To be fair he is a good athlete, he makes good decisions, physically he has a presence, he wasn't fazed by Mbappe or Neymar, I think he grew into the occasion.

"Scott McTominay put in a top performance here a couple of years ago, this young man is not getting out the side, if you can have this athleticism in these positions then you have something special."

While Rio Ferdinand added: "This is where Man United have struggled in the last six to 12 months, in them areas, chasing players down the channels, they can't stay with them and then that opens up the back four or back three.

"But he was smelling danger. Ole [Gunnar Solskjaer] just said he faced two of the best strikers in the world, he snuffed out danger many a time today, you have to reward performances like that.

"He has had a hard time with injury, but again first game in 10 months, to come in and play like that out of the cold, you deserve to be rewarded but Ole is the man to make that decision."
