Man Utd boss Solskjaer: McTominay will soon play

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer insists Scott McTominay will soon be called on again.

Nemanja Matic and fit again Paul Pogba have now established themselves in a midfield partnership with the United boss keeping the same team three league games running.

But Solskjaer insists that 23-year-old McTominay is still very much in his thoughts with the team still fighting on three fronts this season with the FA Cup and Europa League too.

Solskjaer said: “Scott is still a young boy.

“He is seven or eight years younger than Nemanja and Nemanja's been on record saying how much he can see himself in Scott.

“They can bounce off each other but it's never easy.

“So many times I've said to Nemanja 'I'm playing Scott today' and he accepts it and likewise the other way around, they accept it.

“They can play together and I'm sure Scotty will learn from Nemanja.

“But his attributes and the way he's gone about his job has been great."
