Manchester United hero Scott McTominay has revealed United boss Erik ten Hag told him to go and score when he came on as a substitute in our 2-1 win over Brentford.

United trailed for a long time to a Mathias Jensen’s calamitous opener up until injury time, but Scott McTominay who has rarely featured this season, scored a brace to win the game for Manchester United.

“It was very loud, the fans were roaring us on so I couldn’t hear fully,” said McTominay when asked what tactical direction he received from his manager.

“He probably said something like: ‘Go on and score,’ which is what I did.

“That might be one of my favourite moments on a football pitch. Two goals at the death was incredible, but I am just happy to be able to contribute and show people that I can do it.”
