Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay has revealed his intention to improve his aerial ability and wants to have the aerial prowess of captain Harry Maguire.
The Scotland international is keen to add more goals to his game. Despite scoring against Brighton in the League Cup earlier this season, the 23-year-old hasn’t found the net in the Premier League since scoring a long-range strike against Manchester City before lockdown in March.
“I need to score more,” McTominay told United’s official website. “Something in your mind just clicks together and you start to have a real belief.
“Against Chelsea, I had the first contact and should have done better, whenever you’re getting in from a corner.
“The game before, in Paris, I had two opportunities. So it is just that mentality, going into games really believing you can score goals.
“I was just watching Harry and how many first contacts in the box he gets. I was like, well, why can’t I do that? I’m the same size as him. It’s just a little mindset tweak that can really make the difference.”
