Manchester City legend claims top Manchester United midfielder wouldn’t get into West Ham United’s starting XI

Former Manchester City winger Trevor has claimed Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay wouldn’t get into West Ham United’s starting XI.

Despite scoring the winning goal in our FA Cup clash against David Moyes’ side on Tuesday, former England international Sinclair believes Soucek and Rice would keep the Red Devils midfielder out of the Hammers’ starting XI.

Speaking on talkSPORT, former England winger Trevor Sinclair said: “Tomas Soucek and Declain Rice keep Scott McTominay out of the West Ham side, whereas Rice walks into the Manchester United side.

“When you look at McTominay going into the West Ham side, he’s not going to play in one of the forward midfield positions. Soucek is the top scorer and there’s an argument that Rice is better than McTominay.

“Both teams play a 4-2-3-1 so I think the two holding midfielders at West Ham, Soucek and Rice, stay but I think if Rice goes to Man United he takes the position of either McTominay or Fred.”

The Scot has established himself as one of the most consistent performers at Old Trafford this season, scoring 7 goals across all competitions.
