Manchester United record breaker Scott McTominay praised how he and his teammates are “dialled in and focused” after they put six past Leeds in the first tie between the two historic rivals in the top-flight for 16 years.
McTominay scored two goals in the opening three minutes, becoming the first player in Premier League history to do it. He said, “We played well today, and I thought we deserved the six goals.” The Scot spoke about the improvement from last year, saying, “Last season we were far too inconsistent; we were approaching games not in the right frame of mind”. McTominay added, “We want teams to be worried and scared about us when they come here.”
Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer praised his side, saying: “We showed we’re getting a fitter and stronger team.” Solskjaer described the performance as “fantastic”. A game he wishes had been played in front of a crowd saying: “Just imagine if that had 75,000 people here.”
Solskjaer was not to be drawn into talk of a potential title push saying, “We’re one third into the season, not even at the halfway point. So, league position is not something we’re going to look at.” United sit 3rd in the table at Christmas, with a game in hand.Embed from Getty Images
