Scott McTominay continues to impress in an attacking role for Manchester United. He scored yet again in the game against Sheffield United.
McTominay, who had a remarkable performance against Brentford, was given the opportunity to start against Sheffield. And he made the most of it by scoring in the first half.
Despite conceding a penalty, McTominay’s goal was the highlight of the match, showcasing his attacking instincts in his new position.
Sky Sports pundit Jamie Redknapp, impressed by McTominay’s performance, praised the positional change for the £60k-per-week player.
Jamie Redknapp on Scott McTominay
Erik ten Hag has been inspired by McTominay’s attacking performances for Scotland and decided to use him in a similar role.
With three goals in just two games, McTominay has proven his worth in this position. Redknapp agrees with this decision.

“He’s playing in a more forward position, and it suits him. He’s getting in and around the goal,” Redknapp commented.
Redknapp’s endorsement of McTominay in this role aligns with the statistics that showcase the player’s brilliance.
Despite a poor team display, the idea is right
Although the midfield struggled against Sheffield, the team was heading in the right direction.
Sofyan Amrabat had a standout performance, dominating the midfield and controlling the game.
Alongside Bruno Fernandes, McTominay formed an incredibly attacking duo. However, both players are known for their moments of brilliance rather than maintaining possession.
McTominay could thrive in this position in the long term, but it would require a player like Mason Mount in midfield instead of Bruno, which seems unlikely to happen.
Ten Hag faces a conundrum in finding a solution to fit this impressive lineup of players.
