The goal means his strikes have earned United 12 points this season. That's the best contribution by a player in the league in terms of point-winning goals, with Tottenham's Son Heung-min second on 10 points and Bournemouth's Dominic Solanke on nine.
Former Premier League striker Troy Deeney spoke on Match of the Day 2 about McTominay's impact: "In Scott McTominay he stays ready, stays positive throughout all the stick he gets because that was available last year. He comes on, he scores goals and he does the same for Scotland as well and he's always ready, doesn't complain and he gets on with his job. You'd probably argue that's why some of the players who are probably more talented don't get as much time as him."
