Shearer praises Man Utd midfielder McTominay for Chelsea draw

Former England captain Alan Shearer is full of praise for Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay.

The BBC pundit highlighted the 24-year-old's work-rate and defensive discipline in United's draw against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge at the weekend.

Speaking on Match of the Day 2, Shearer said: "What he did well is something that they've obviously worked on in the last few days — reducing the number of times players were able to get in behind them.

"He dropped in almost as a third centre-back to help Wan-Bissaka stop their wing-backs.

"United had a bit of luck throughout the game, but they deserved it by the way they set up."
