Man United vs Huddersfield
Manchester United faced Huddersfield on Sunday in a must-win tie.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side started the day in 6th place, three points behind 4th-placed Chelsea.
Chelsea also played on Sunday at home to Watford.
If United were to stand any real chance of finishing 4th this season, they needed Maurizio Sarri’s side to lose or draw vs the Hornets.
Man United would also need to beat Huddersfield and then Cardiff on the final day of the season.
McTominay steals the show
Man United’s Sunday got off to a solid start as Scott McTominay put them 1-0 up inside eight minutes with a little help from Huddersfield’s keeper.
– “That is as bad as it gets.”

While United haven’t been in the best form in recent weeks, McTominay always seems to put on a stellar display, even if United play poorly.
The Red Devils did not have their best game vs 20th-placed Huddersfield but McTominay was once again giving his all, winning balls and putting in solid tackles.
As a result, United fans have taken to social media to praise the young midfielder.
Scott McTominay is the only midfielder we have who is actually reliable in whatever he does, always stood by him and had to listen to crap from fellow fans, cause he doesnt have a high rating on fifa probably #idiots #mufc

Jose Mourinho spoke highly and glowingly of Scott McTominay. I see why…no fanciness, no fuss…just gets bout his job. Thats exactly what United need…less of Pogba’s flashiness and more of McTominay’s simplicity. #MUFC

Scott Mctominay is one of the few players in this squad that gets it. Might not be naturally blessed with ability but he works hard and gives 100%.
