Only Three Months Ago, Scott McTominay Was Playing Against PSG In The Under-23s
Scott McTominay has received his fair share of praise after his performance against Paris Saint-Germain in the second leg of the Champions League.
The 22-year-old Manchester United midfielder took his position in the starting XI and put in a serious shift for his side, with the stats backing up that claim.
McTominay completed 100 per cent of his passes in the final third, while he also had 96.2 per cent pass accuracy.
The Scotland international also won all fives of the tackles he was involved in, along with recovering the ball four times and had one interception to his name as well.
While most of the attention might have been placed on Romelu Lukaku's brace or Marcus Rashford scoring his first United penalty to win the match, McTominay has come a long way since the match.
After all, the United player found himself playing in the Red Devils under-23s against PSG in January, though he did open the scoring in that Premier League International Cup match.
Last month, United caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjær praised McTominay's performance against Liverpool, as well as comparing him with former Red Devils star Darren Fletcher.
"I learned a lot about Scott McTominay, who I've been waiting to give a chance in a more attacking role, he can run into the box, is dangerous, he was a Darren Fletcher today for us," he said at the time.
How far will United progress in the Champions League?
