It appears that the sensation that is Scott McTominay, Manchester United’s leading top scorer in the Premier League, is making waves abroad as well.

The Scotland international found the back of the net twice on Wednesday night as the Red Devils beat Chelsea 2-1 at Old Trafford, and was duly rewarded with the man of the match award.

In fact, McTominay is one of the few players who can hold his head high amid what is a low period at Manchester United these days, and journalist Nicola Roggero told Numero Diez all his thoughts about the midfielder when asked about the 26-year-old.

He said: “He has grown with the club, he embodies the philosophy of Old Trafford. He never gives up, he has a real Scottish spirit of combativeness, but it’s surprising how many goals he scores. (…) To call him a fighting player is limiting. He is a football who is proving to be extraordinary.”

Often used in more defensive roles in the past, even playing as a central defender, the Manchester United midfielder has found a bit more freedom going forward under Erik ten Hag this year.

He has repaid that with six goals and an assist in 16 games this season, taking his tally to 25 in 225 appearances for the Red Devils since making his debut back during the 2016-17 season.
