Manchester United’s Scott McTominay praised the performances of United’s three players who ensured Ole Gunnar got better revenge against Tottenham.
It was the Brazilian Fred who equalized for the Red Devils to cancel out Son,s first-half goal before Cavani latched into Mason Greenwood’s goal to put the visitors ahead. Greenwood completed the riot by scoring the third deep in the stoppage time.
On a satisfying afternoon, Scott McTominay has named Paul Pogba, Fred, and Edinson Cavani as players who were crucial in the 3-1 win over Jose Mourinho’s side.
While speaking to Sky Sports, Scott gave his view regarding the VAR decision that saw his goal ruled out after he fouled Son during the goal build-up. Though he preferred to single out his teammates for a solid display.

Scott McTominay said:
“At half-time the message was clear: just keep calm, no need to panic. We know that we have good character in the team and against a really difficult team, so we’re happy.
“Personally I’m not a fan of VAR but the referees have to make decisions. It was a case of keeping calm. Everybody makes mistakes and that’s part and parcel of it.
“It was a total injustice but you just have to get on with the game. Getting three points in a really difficult game was pleasing.
“Fred was terrific today, along with Paul [Pogba] and Mason [Greenwood]. They had real energy and the manager will be pleased with a lot of players today.
“We owed Tottenham a proper game — we had that in our minds — and today was much better than last time.”
