As Manchester United entered added time on Saturday, it looked as though we were about to suffer our fifth Premier League defeat of the season. But Scott McTominay, who had come on in the 87th minute, had other ideas.
In the 93rd minute, he brought the ball down with a fantastic shot and found the corner of the goal to make it 1-1. In the 97th minute, Harry Maguire headed the ball on to McTominay who then put us 2-1 ahead. It was remarkable. Before McTominay’s entrance, United looked like they could play all day without scoring, but the Scottish international turned everything around.
Two goals at the death was incredible — that might be one of my favourite moments on a football pitch. It’s hard to put into words because I’ve been at United my whole life, since I was five years old. For me, this football club means everything. I was watching David Beckham’s documentary last night and it’s things like that that inspire. [Sir Alex] was always looking at his watch like that. It just shows today you can score a last-minute winner. It’s brilliant.
I can’t put into words the feeling that I had when the second one went in, it was like an out-of-body experience.
It’s so important that we all come together and that’s what it means at this football club – we do it for the people. That’s the same as me, I’m a fan so I want us to do well.
