Dan Gore's debut highlights vs Crystal Palace have Man Utd fans making the same comparison

Fans are all saying the same thing.

Dan Gore's debut highlights against Crystal Palace have got Manchester United fans all making the same comparison.

The Red Devils came away comprehensive 3-0 winners over Crystal Place during their Carabao Cup clash on Tuesday evening thanks to goals from Alejandro Garnacho, Casemiro and Anthony Martial.

There were a series of impressive displays across the pitch, with the likes of Mason Mount, Sofyan Amrabat and Hannibal Mejbri all making a strong impression.

However, Dan Gore, who came on for Amrabat around the hour mark, did not go unnoticed.

The English midfielder celebrated his 19th birthday in style, producing an assured performance in the middle of the park.

Fans have since compared him to Scott McTominay, who was scrutinised for his performance against Bayern Munich.

Taking to Twitter after the game, one fan wrote: "Dan Gore already more impressive than Scott McTominay."

"Don’t take me wrong but I’m playing Dan Gore over Mctominay all day everyday," another added.

"Don't sleep on Dan gore, him and Mejbri taking McTominay's space this season," a third remarked.

"I want Dan Gore to do everything he can to keep McTominay out of this team," a fourth exclaimed. "The boy looked bright and played with confidence. Our midfield is stacked talents."

While another chimed in: "Dan Gore is a diamond in the rough, when I watch a player do things and smile, I know he is a baller. McTominay are you watching? Dan Gore and [Kobbie] Mainoo will become superstars

"It was good having you onboard Scot Mctominay, but it's time for a new gem: DAN GORE," another tweet read.

Meanwhile, manager Erik ten Hag was also full of praise for the young midfielder, stating that he deserved the opportunity to play.

Speaking to MUTV after the game (via Manchester Evening News), Ten Hag said: "I think it's a great birthday for him, but I'm not a manager - and we don't have coaches here - who give players opportunities [for nothing], they have to deserve it. Once they deserve it, they get the chance," Ten Hag said.

"But then, they have to prove it and I think, the young players like Hannibal, Pellistri and Garnacho, they have to do it every time and we are very critical, they deserve it every day in training.

"When the standards are too low, they will hear it and we don't play them because they have to train every day to the maximum."
