The match against the visiting team took an unexpected turn when Mathias Jensensecured the lead for them during the first half. Manchester United’s makeshift defence appeared vulnerable against the opposition’s offensive prowess.
Goalkeeper Andre Onana had an opportunity to make a better save but only managed to get a feeble hand on the ball. At halftime, Casemiro was substituted for Christian Eriksen in an attempt to bolster United’s efforts, but the team continued to struggle to regain control of the game.
Scott McTominay thought he had finally secured a late equalizer for United, but the goal was ultimately ruled offside, further complicating the situation.
However, the game’s narrative took an astonishing twist when McTominay rose to the occasion and scored two vital goals, securing all three points for Manchester United.
This dramatic turn of events spared the team from what could have been another embarrassing defeat, and McTominay’s late heroics have been celebrated by fans. Writing on X (formerly known as Twitter), one fan said, “Scott Mctominay the way you have saved my life you wouldn’t understand.”
Another fan opined, “Scott McTominay starting the international break a few days earlier than usual.”
