Manchester United midfielder, Scott McTominay has expressed hope that players who haven’t enjoyed enough game time this season will get their chance when we play against Burnley today.
United play Burnley tonight, for a chance to go top of the Premier League, after recording an important 1-0 win over Watford in the FA Cup last season.
McTominay was the captain against Watford, as he scored the important winner in the game that saw Olè Gunnar Solskjaer rest some of his first team players, and he believes more opportunities will come for them to shine.
Speaking after the game on Saturday, the midfielder said, “It is a squad game, as you’ve seen here.
“There are players who haven’t played so on Tuesday [against Burnley in the Premier League] I’m sure there will be changes again.”
He added, “I feel like we’ve seen that with Jesse Lingard, with Donny van de Beek, with guys like that tonight. Daniel James in the first-half.”
It’s yet to be seen if Solskjaer will field a weakened side against Burnley, who are expected to be without up to 9 of their first team players tonight, although the Norwegian has been warned against tinkering his side too much.
