Scott McTominay came to Manchester United’s rescue last night, latching onto Marcus Rashford’s flick to seal victory in the first half of extra time.
It had been a frustrating game for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side, who found themselves unable to unpick a solid West Ham defence.
However McTominay eventually broke the deadlock after coming off the bench, netting for his third successive game.
The 24-year-old took his goal well, hitting a first time volley that left West Ham keeper Łukasz Fabiański no time to react.
As he wheeled away in celebration, teammates Bruno Fernandes and Rashford joined him, Rashford complimenting the midfielder on a “brilliant” finish.
Bruno on the other hand jokingly blasted McTominay claiming “that ball was for me, motherf*****”.

It’s not the first time Fernandes has celebrated with his teammates in unorthodox fashion. After McTominay’s long-range effort against Southampton, the Portuguese talisman kicked him as he ran past to celebrate.

Both men have been undoubted standouts for United this season, with the Scot proving himself to be the go-to for games against tough opposition.
