Scotland international Scott McTominay is determined to cement the starting role with Manchester United. The youngster has been in-and-out of the first XI for the Red Devils over the past two seasons but he has been afforded with the chance to solidify the starting berth alongside Paul Pogba this campaign.
Nemanja Matic has been the regular partner for Pogba over the past couple of seasons but his performances have genuinely dropped over the past year where he has been found out for the reduced mobility and slow decision-making. That has permitted McTominay to jump ahead of him in the pecking order and he now requires a consistent run of form to stabilise the position.
United have parted ways with both Marouane Fellaini and Ander Herrera over the past eight months, but there have not been any replacements pursued. United boss Solskjaer has spoken about the ambition of nurturing young talents at the club and hopefully McTominay can be one of those, who can serve the club for the long-term. McTominay is expected to feature for the Red Devils when they tackle Wolverhampton Wanderers on the road on Monday night.
