Scott McTominay should have continued his fantastic recent scoring run with an early goal against Fulham on Saturday, however the goal was ruled out for “subjective offside”.
The former academy player spoke well after the game, which we won 1-0 thanks to a late goal from Bruno Fernandes, and referred to the ‘Play Like You Mean It’ banner that was displayed in the away end when interviewed by TNT Sports.
We seen the banner before the game and a few of us said, ‘You know what? The fans pay good money to come and watch us every week and the support is relentless towards us every single week’. We just want to repay them as best we can. Things aren’t going the best at the moment but it’s building blocks.
Step by step and with the manager, the coaching staff, we trust them a lot, we trust the players and I feel we can go and kick on and do better.
Sometimes, when everyone is against you, you’ve got to do it your own way, come together and fight like dogs. It’s a building block. I thought we did more than enough to win the game in the end.
Bruno Fernandes acknowledged the dreadful week United had endured in the lead up to the game, with defeats against City and Newcastle, but hailed the efforts of his teammates in winning the ball back to set up his goal.
Everyone knows the situation is not the best. The last two games weren’t the performances we wanted to give, and the results obviously. Today was a different game. We had to deliver something different, and we delivered. We got the three points and that’s most important.
It’s about the team, what everyone does on the pitch. It was a game where everyone sacrificed, everyone ran, everyone worked harder. Even with the goal, you could see the reaction of the players trying to get the ball.
