Scott McTominay Shocks Everyone With Two Goals In Three Minutes

Scott McTominay grabbed everyone's attention with two well taken goals in just three minutes, to give Manchester United the perfect start against Leeds United.

All eyes were on Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon as Leeds returned to Old Trafford for a Premier League game for the first time in 17 years.

Marcelo Bielsa's side have impressed in their first season back in the top tier whilst Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team have been poor at home and failed to start well in any game this season.

However McTominay turned everything on its head within mere minutes. First he got on the end of Bruno Fernandes' square past outside of the area and the Scotsman struck a perfect first time shot into the bottom corner with just 67 seconds on the clock.

Less than two minutes later the 24-year-old had doubled his goalscoring tally for the season, and his side's lead.

The midfielder burst forward from nowhere and got on the end of a through ball into the box from Anthony Martial, before guiding the ball into the back of the net with his left foot, to leave Gary Neville on commentary to claim the United man had 'turned into Roy Keane and Paul Scholes.'

Leeds began to plug away, trying to get back into the game, and they did have the ball in the back of the net after Rodrigo's shot deflected into Patrick Bamford's path. The striker put the ball past David de Gea but he was correctly waved offside.

Bruno Fernandes then made it 3-0 on 20 minutes, the ball fell to him after Anthony Martial was tackled in the box, with the Portuguese midfielder rifling the ball home from close range.

Victor Lindelof made it 4-0 before half time, scoring from a corner after a flick on from Martial, and Leeds returned the favour to make it 4-1 just four minutes before the break when Liam Cooper scored from a set piece.
