Solskjaer explains his Fred and McTominay decision

Scott McTominay and Fred were again, the preferred players in midfield on Saturday, as Manchester United took on Everton at Goodison Park.

And both players were impressive, as they gave the team the right balance, and allowed Bruno Fernandes express himself enough on the pitch.

The partnership has been one of the most fruitful for United this season, and when asked about his decision to field them again on Saturday, United boss, Olé Gunnar Solskjaer said, “Scott and Fred have done brilliant together. They’re a great partnership.

“Of course, they didn’t start during the week. Scott played 45 minutes in Turkey but you can see they have fresh legs.

“With Bruno [Fernandes]’s goals, Scott and Fred with that energy and in that engine room are always key for us so our creative players can go on, create chances, show their magic. They’re so disciplined and very pleased with the two of them.”

Scott and Fred have shown more hunger than other United midfielders this season, hence their continued inclusion in the starting lineup.

If both players can add some goals to their play, there’s no reason they will be dropped moving forward.
