Scott McTominay could be the solution to Manchester United’s midfield problems, insists talkSPORT’s Tony Cascarino

16 Sep

Scott McTominay will be a valuable player to Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as he continues his rebuild, according to Tony Cascarino.

Writing in his column for the Times, the talkSPORT host expressed his admiration for the Scotland international who has been ever-present for the Red Devils this season.

While Cascarino acknowledges United are a weaker side in midfield without the experienced Ander Herrera, who joined Paris Saint-Germain on a free transfer in the summer, he believes academy product McTominay is an asset.

“They will miss the tenacity and ball-winning ability of Ander Herrera, but McTominay is a solid option in that defensive midfielder role,” he wrote.

“He’s not a world beater but will be a valuable player.

“United are a club who are going through a transition that will take years thanks to the neglect of the past few seasons.

“Solskjaer is putting them back on the right track and hard-working, committed young players like McTominay will be vital to helping him this season.”

For his part, the player has backed himself to fill the void left by Herrera.

“That was my goal two years ago and last year,” McTominay said in the summer when asked if he can be a regular starter.

“That’s always been my goal. It’s my ambition to be a regular no.6, no.8, a box to box player – that’s my main ambition. It’s important that I really go for that now.

“Obviously there is an opportunity there and you’ve got to take it with both hands. Last year I had some decent performances and it’s important that I carry on from that.

“We’re in the Europa League this year and it’s important that I continue.”

Former United boss Jose Mourinho is also a big fan of the 22-year-old, labelling him a ‘mad dog’ who is ‘afraid of nobody’ following an impressive display in a 1-0 defeat to Barcelona in April last season.

Meanwhile, Cascarino also moved to defend Solskjaer amid suggestions he won’t be in charge of the club this time next year.

“It’s really unfair that people think Ole Gunnar Solskjaer won’t last this season at Manchester United,” he added.

“His three summer signings — Daniel James, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Harry Maguire — have all made promising starts and in Scott McTominay he has a good solution to his midfield problems.”

Manchester United player ratings: Rashford shines, Maguire and Wan-Bissaka with good debuts as Red Devils humble Chelsea

11 Aug

Manchester United got their 2019/20 Premier League season off to the ideal start with a devastating 4-0 victory at home to Frank Lampard’s Chelsea.

Two goals from Marcus Rashford, and strikes from Anthony Martial and Daniel James secured the rampant win in a game where United were ruthless in front of goal.

It was the perfect result for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men but not the perfect performance, but how did each United player do?

Below you can see talkSPORT.com’s Manchester United player ratings.

David de Gea – 6

Was well-beaten by efforts from Tammy Abraham and Emerson Palmieri but made a smart save to deny Ross Barkley in the first-half. Generally, a decent performance from the Spaniard.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka – 8

A very good Red Devils Premier League debut for the full-back who helped keep the likes of Pedro relatively quiet.

Victor Lindelof – 6

The Swede looks far more confident with Harry Maguire as his centre-back partner, however, there are still improvements United’s defence need to make.

Harry Maguire – 7

There was lots of pressure on £80million Maguire going into the game but he did enough to keep Chelsea out. He was also seen barking out orders to his team-mates which is what United have lacked in defence for years.

Luke Shaw – 7

United’s Player of the Year last season was in good form in the 2019/20 opener and got forward plenty of times as well.

Scott McTominay – 6

You know what you’re going to get from McTominay – plenty of effort and heart and today was no different. However, the likes of Mason Mount got the better of the midfielder a couple of times.

Paul Pogba – 6

Despite suggesting he was ready to leave Old Trafford this summer, Pogba is still around and it was more of the same from him today. He wasn’t at his lightning best but offered moments of class on the ball and provided exquisite assists for the third and fourth goals.

Andreas Pereira – 7

This is a big season for midfielder Pereira as he looks to establish himself in United’s first team and he did his chances no harm with a workmanlike display against the Blues.

Jesse Lingard – 7

England man Lingard showed good composure in midfield and was constantly in the Chelsea midfielder’s faces off the ball. Linked up with team-mate Rashford well and charged Andreas Christensen well which led to United’s penalty and their first goal.

Anthony Martial – 6

Squandered a really good chance to give United the lead early on and the game passed him by at points. However, Martial did grab United’s second goal which set United on their way to the convincing win.

Marcus Rashford – 8

He was the scorer of United’s first and third goals and they were well-deserved for Rashford. He gave Chelsea’s defence plenty to think about and led the line well which is what he’ll have to do all season following Romelu Lukaku’s departure.

A very good day at the office for Rashford, who scored two goals

Substitutes: 

Daniel James – 6

Came on in the 74th minute to make a cameo debut but James managed to get on the scoresheet after his effort deflected off Palmieri to make it 4-0.

Mason Greenwood – N/A

After having a promising pre-season, Greenwood came on in the 86th minute. However, the game was won at this point and the forward didn’t really do anything noteworthy.

Juan Mata – N/A

The Spaniard came on with Greenwood and unsurprisingly did not do much in his short time on the pitch.

Man United midfielder Scott McTominay chosen as Pro Evolution Soccer 2020 cover star alongside Lionel Messi and fans are baffled

30 Jul

Scott McTominay has been revealed as one of the cover stars of Pro Evolution Soccer 2020… and such a shock selection has been met by surprise from fans of the game.

The Manchester United midfielder joins Lionel Messi, Serge Gnabry and Miralem Pjanic on the front cover of the popular game.

McTominay posted a picture of the game on Instagram and said he was ‘proud’ to feature on its cover.

The Red Devils signed a partnership with Konami earlier this month which will see them officially licensed in the latest edition of the hit video game series.

The 22-year-old midfielder was perhaps a surprising choice seeing as he is not yet an established regular starter with the club.

He could be set for a bigger role this season, however, with the departure of Ander Herrera and speculation continuing over Paul Pogba’s future at Old Trafford.

Established stars such as David de Gea, Jesse Lingard, Marcus Rashford, or Pogba himself, may have been a more obvious selection as a Man United cover star for PES 2020.

Konami have also signed an exclusive deal with Juventus to be officially licensed in the soon-to-be-released game, which means EA Sports will not be able to use the Serie A club’s name, kits or stadium in FIFA 20.

The reaction on Twitter to the news McTominay is a cover star has been mixed, with some fans congratulating the midfielder for making the cover.

Most, however, were baffled by the choice to select McTominay.

Scott McTominay backs himself to fill the void at Manchester United left by Ander Herrera’s departure

22 Jul

Scott McTominay believes the key to becoming a regular starter at Manchester United is versatility.

The 22-year-old made 22 appearances for the Red Devils last season and was trusted in important Champions League clashes against Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona.

The Scotland international wants to nail down a starting spot in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side next season.

With Ander Herrera leaving the club at the end of last season, and no replacement signed yet, he could find more opportunities to establish himself as a first team regular.

“That was my goal two years ago and last year,” McTominay said when asked if he can be a regular starter next season.

“That’s always been my goal. It’s my ambition to be a regular No.6, No.8, a box to box player – that’s my main ambition. It’s important that I really go for that now.

“Obviously there is an opportunity there and you’ve got to take it with both hands. Last year I had some decent performances and it’s important that I carry on from that.

“We’re in the Europa League this year and it’s important that I continue.”

United continue to chase Newcastle midfielder Sean Longstaff but McTominay backs himself regardless of who they may bring in.

He added: “Regardless of what other signings come in or who plays where, you have to back yourself to be a Man United player. That’s one thing that I’ve done over the last two years, I’ve always backed myself.

“I’ve tried to train hard and I’ve always wanted to do extra things to try and give me that one per cent difference. When it comes to crucial times in big games like Barcelona or PSG in the Champions League, it’s important that you’re ready for them.”

Paul Pogba to start? How Manchester United could line up against Perth Glory in pre-season opener

12 Jul

Paul Pogba could start in Manchester United’s pre-season opener against Perth Glory on Saturday.

Last week, the France star’s agent, Mino Raiola, confirmed his client wanted to leave Old Trafford.

The confirmation came after Real Madrid target Pogba admitted ‘it could be time for a new challenge’.

Despite his desire to leave, the 26-year-old is set to play a part in United’s pre-season tour of Australia.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side face Perth Glory and Leeds United before jetting off to play Inter Milan and Sevilla in Singapore and China, respectively.

There could be debuts for summer signings Daniel James and Aaron Wan-Bissaka this weekend.

James will be hoping to hit the ground running after an impressive breakthrough 2018/19 season with Swansea, while Wan-Bissaka is expected to become the club’s first-choice right-back.

Romelu Lukaku, who has been heavily linked with a move to Serie A giants Inter Milan, and Anthony Martial could sit out of the Perth Glory clash after picking up knocks in training.

Marcus Rashford is likely to lead the line as he hopes to improve on his 13-goal tally from last season.

There could also be starts for United academy graduates Mason Greenwood and Angel Gomes who were both given first-team minutes by Solskjaer last term.

Axel Tuanzebe, who won promotion to the Premier League with Aston Villa in May, could also have a chance to impress Solskjaer after returning from his loan spell.

Reports claim David de Gea is close to signing a new United deal and is set to keep his No.1 spot despite a shaky end to the 2018/19 season.

Manchester United vs Chelsea: The teams Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Frank Lampard could name for their 2019/20 Premier League season opener – Christian Pulisic and Aaron Wan-Bissaka to debut?

13 Jun

Manchester United host Chelsea on the opening weekend of the 2019/20 Premier League season.

It is a mouth-watering showdown coming early in a vital campaign for both clubs with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Frank Lampard wanting to prove themselves as managers.

Lampard has been hired as Chelsea manager

It is Solskjaer’s first full season as United manager, while Lampard has replaced Maurizio Sarri, who joined Juventus this summer.

The two both have differing transfer market circumstances too with the Norwegian able to splash the cash at Old Trafford, while at Stamford Bridge their legendary midfield must rely on youth as the club’s two-window transfer ban is currently ongoing.

Here, talkSPORT.com look at how both clubs could line up at Old Trafford on August 11 as they begin their campaigns.

Manchester United

David De Gea’s future remains up in the air, but reports claim United chiefs are set to make a last-ditch contract offer to him.

The Spaniard, whose deal runs out next summer, is believed to want the same £500,000-a-week wages as Alexis Sanchez.

United appear desperate to keep their No.1 and could give in to his demands to ensure he commits his long-term future to the club.

De Gea could have two new defenders in front of him. Crystal Palace starlet Aaron Wan-Bissaka has completed a big-money move to United.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka could be Manchester United’s new long-term right-back

Further reports have claimed United will have to break their transfer record to land England star Harry Maguire.

The Leicester centre-back was close to moving to Old Trafford last summer, and he is back on the club’s radar.

A defensive partnership with Victor Lindelof would significantly strengthen United’s backline, which would have Luke Shaw at left-back.

Nemanja Matic and Scott McTominay could be the workhorses in midfield to give Bruno Fernandes, Sporting Lisbon’s attacking midfielder, who could replace Real Madrid target Paul Pogba, a free role.

Jesse Lingard, who is reportedly set to be offered a new contract by Solskjaer, could operate on the right with new signing Daniel James on the opposite wing and Marcus Rashford through the middle.

With Romelu Lukaku heavily linked with a move to Inter Milan, if he departs, it will be a big season for Rashford.

Is this the Manchester United team that will take on Chelsea?

Chelsea

With Chelsea’s transfer ban, their defence could look very similar to last season. Kepa is certain to keep his place in goal after an encouraging debut season in England.

Cesar Azpilicueta, David Luiz, Antonio Rudiger and Marcos Alonso could make up the back four. Right-back Reece James, who is set to get a run in the first-team next season, is sidelined with ligament damage in his ankle.

Reece James enjoyed a hugely successful loan spell at Wigan last season
Getty

Fikayo Tomori, who played almost every minute of Derby’s Championship campaign last term, could rival Luiz and Rudiger for a regular starting spot.

Rudiger missed the last month of the 2018/19 season with a knee injury, but is expected to be fit for the United clash.

With Mateo Kovacic’s loan deal from Real Madrid becoming permanent, it’s likely they will line-up with a similar midfield, with N’Golo Kante and the Croatian flanking Jorginho.

N’Golo Kante could return to his previous role for Chelsa
Getty

We could, though, potenitally see Blues academy graduate Mason Mount and Ross Barkley play slightly further ahead if Lampard decides to move Kante back to his former position.

New boy Christian Pulisic will have to fill the void left by Eden Hazard, who joined Real Madrid in an initial £88million deal, which could rise to £150million.

England youngster Callum Hudson-Odoi is still nursing a ruptured achilles, which could see Willian start on the left wing to accommodate Pulisic.

Tammy Abraham could finally get a chance to lead the line for Chelsea after loan spells with Bristol City, Swansea and Aston Villa.

Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay reveals he felt conflicted watching arch-rivals Liverpool win Champions League

4 Jun

Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay admits he struggled to watch bitter rivals Liverpool lift the Champions League trophy on Saturday night – but he was delighted for Andy Robertson.

The Reds won their sixth European Cup with a 2-0 victory over Tottenham to cap off a remarkable season, while United will still be reflecting on their dreadful campaign.

The Red Devils finished a staggering 31 points behind Liverpool in the Premier League this season.

They will subsequently compete in the Europa League next term, as the Reds defend their Champions League crown.

And McTominay, who has been with United since the age of five, could barely watch as Jordan Henderson held the famous trophy aloft.

“I’m a Man United man through and through so I can’t lie it wasn’t easy, it was a tough watch,” McTominay told the Herald.

However, the 22-year-old was able to salvage one positive from the night, with his compatriot Robertson playing a starring role in Madrid.

He added: “It was still good to see a fellow Scotsman on the pitch and beautiful to see what he’s gone through from 2012 to now.

“It’s amazing for him and we’re relishing getting him back and hopefully kicking on in a Scotland jersey.

Manchester United team news: Predicted Red Devils line-up for last Premier League game of season against Cardiff City

11 May

Manchester United’s season has not panned out how they would have hoped and will end outside the top four.

The club have gone backwards from finishing second to their rivals Manchester City last season.

New manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is still finding his feet and there is set to be a substantial overhaul of the squad in the summer.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will have decisions to make about the United line-up

Among those out of contract are Antonio Valencia, Juan Mata and Ander Herrera while there are doubts about the future of a number of big names stars including Paul Pogba, David De Gea and Anthony Martial.

Solskjaer will have a big decision to make about who he selects for the match at Old Trafford.

Finishing fifth could be important for United as it would ensure a place in the Europa League group stage proper.

Sixth would still see them in the competition but the result of the FA Cup final would dictate if they are in the group stage or second qualifying round.

We’ve taken a look at how Manchester United could line-up for the Cardiff match.

How Manchester United could line-up against Cardiff

Six youngsters were promoted to first team training ahead of the match with Tahith Chong, Angel Gomes, Dylan Levitt, Arnau Puigmal, Mason Greenwood and James Garner all included.

Chong is the likeliest to start as he has seen some minutes already this season.

One player who will be getting some minutes is Antonio Valencia, who is leaving the club in the summer after a decade at the club.

“I spoke to Antonio yesterday,” Solskjaer said. “He’s not been fit the five or six months I’ve been here unfortunately.
