McTominay urges teammates to turn up against Leipzig

Scott McTominay has urged his Manchester United teammates to keep the winning momentum going when they host German side, RB Leipzig, in the second group stage match of the ongoing UEFA Champions League.

The Red Devils won their first game 2-1 away from home against Paris Saint-Germain, and McTominay, who was one of the team’s best players on the night, believes winning is the least Olé Gunnar Solskjaer’s men should be gunning for.

Speaking ahead of the match, the midfielder said, “With a big win on Wednesday, it would be massive for everybody and the confidence that we are getting each week, and match by match, it would be really beneficial for the squad.

“There’s no point going away to Paris, when it is a big game and the whole world is watching, and doing really well, and then not playing as well or doing all the right things that got you the win in Paris at home against Leipzig.

“We know the intensity that they (Leipzig) will bring. They are a terrific team, I watched them a lot last year with a lot of the coaches in the Champions League games that they played.

“They’re a very, very intense team with a good coach and good players as well, so it is not going to be an easy game at all.”

If United win on Wednesday, they will go top of group H, which interestingly, has been dubbed the ‘group of death’.
