BBC Sport pundit raves about 22-year-old’s display in Man United’s 3-1 win at PSG
Charlie Adam was impressed with Scott McTominay's performance in Manchester United's 3-1 win over PSG on Wednesday night
Scott McTominay looked like a seasoned Champions League and Manchester United player in Wednesday night’s 3-1 win at Paris Saint-Germain, according to Charlie Adam.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer opted to start the 22-year-old in the heart of the midfield for the trip to PSG as Manchester United looked to overturn a 2-0 deficit from the first leg of the last-16 tie.
Belgium international Romelu Lukaku scored in the second minute before Juan Bernat levelled for the hosts 10 minutes later following some poor defending from Eric Bailly.
Lukaku managed to restore Manchester United’s lead after a mistake from Gianluigi Buffon to leave the Red Devils on the brink of an unlikely spot in the last eight.
Manchester United left it late to complete their comeback when Marcus Rashford scored from the spot after the visitors were given a VAR-awarded penalty.
While Lukaku and Rashford earned the plaudits for their goals in the French capital, McTominay earned some rave reviews on social media for his composed performance.
BBC Sport pundit Adam praised his compatriot McTominay for a brilliant display in the middle of the park.
“You would think McTominay had played 100 games in the Champions League and 250 for United,” Adam told BBC Sport.
“He sat there composed, he broke up play and showed good quality. He never looked out of place.
“This is why as a manager you trust your players and give them a chance.”
McTominay won five tackles and finished with 96 per cent pass completion in the 3-1 victory over PSG in the Champions League clash.
The Scot will be hoping to retain his place in Solskjaer’s team for their trip to Arsenal in the Premier League on Sunday.
