The Scottish midfielder continued his partnership with Paul Pogba in the middle of the park but failed to replicate his performance from the Chelsea game.

Scott McTominay moved the ball around well in the first half but showed no signs of the pressing that was desperately required in the game. As a result, the Wolves midfield gradually got back into the game.

McTominay was also unusually slow off the blocks and took too much time on the ball. He did not move the ball fast enough and often drew in pressure from the home side.

McTominay’s passing was also poor and he often opted for the safer route on the pitch. This meant that despite having the bulk of the possession, United caused Wolves very little trouble and the home side was comfortable even without the ball.

McTominay already has Nemanja Matic breathing down his shoulders, and will need to massively improve to keep the Serbian away from the first team.
