Scott McTominay Manchester United

Scott McTominay is targeting headed goals as a key area in which he can improve and says his Manchester United captain is leading the way for him to learn. McTominay admitted Harry Maguire’s aerial prowess is something he can copy at United. The midfielder has enjoyed a memorable week away on international duty with Scotland, helping his country qualify for a first major tournament in 22 years with a Euro play-off victory over Serbia on penalties. He regularly plays as a defender for Scotland, but for United McTominay is keen to add more goals to his game. The 23-year-old scored against Brighton in the League Cup earlier this season but hasn’t found the net in the Premier League since that long-range strike against Man City before lockdown in March.

Scott Mctominay said “I need to score more, Something in your mind just clicks together and you start to have a real belief. Against Chelsea, I had the first contact and should have done better, whenever you’re getting in from a corner. The game before, in Paris, I had two opportunities. So it is just that mentality, going into games really believing you can score goals. I was just watching Harry and how many first contacts in the box he gets. I was like, well, why can’t I do that? I’m the same size as him. It’s just a little mindset tweak that can really make the difference. The options we have when delivering wide free-kicks and corners are amazing and we saw that in Paris in the Champions League game. The quality we have is amazing and it’s up to me, Paul [Pogba] or Nemanja [Matic] or Harry or Victor [Lindelof] or Axel [Tuanzebe], the ones who are playing, to really go and make them count.”
