Scott McTominay came off the bench to score Manchester United’s second ing a 2-0 win over Manchester City. We are currently three points off top four and McTominay has stressed in an interview with Sky Sports how important it was for us to get the win this afternoon.

It was such a sweet moment, especially in a game where we could have done with a goal early on to finish the game. It was beautiful. I know one or two City fans and it will be good to rub that in their faces. I read the goalkeeper. You have to give yourself half a chance. You rush in and get there, before Mendy, so it was obviously such a beautiful one especially in front of our fans. It means a lot for me. Even one or two singing your name, never mind the whole Stretford End and the whole ground, it is brilliant.

I have been injured for two months but I was desperate to get back because I could see the progression of the team. To come on today and help the team was a pleasure. I am fighting for my place, everybody is not guaranteed a starting spot and everybody has to keep working every week. That is one of the most important things – to keep your feet on the ground and keep pushing forwards.

We have won a game today, fantastic, but it is the next one and the next one after that. We can’t get too carried away we have to keep going and keep pushing for the Champions League. Credit to the boys – they were top drawer today. We had a sticky first 15-20 mins but you can see how much it means to the boys. It is a game we have to take confidence from but, in the coming weeks, we have to really go for some proper results and keep this run going.
