Who was our Man of the Match against Chelsea?

Wednesday 06 December 2023 23:00

Scott McTominay has bagged his second Man of the Match award of the season for his brace against Chelsea on Wednesday.

The midfielder twice put United ahead, once in either half, and the second of his efforts ultimately proved the difference between the two sides at Old Trafford.

From minute one, Erik ten Hag's side were seemingly at the races, with multiple Reds putting in impressive performances, but it was Scott who came out on top in our fan poll, as you can see below.

Who was United's Man of the Match against Chelsea?

McTominay gained 72 per cent from our post-match poll, after another dynamic performance to win Man of the Match for the second time this season; the first came after his injury-time brace against Brentford in October.

The first of his goals came as he reacted first in the box after superb build-up play between Bruno Fernandes and Alejandro Garnacho led to Harry Maguire's shot being blocked, finishing emphatically to put United ahead in the first half.

Then, in the second, he was the difference for Erik's side once more, following Cole Palmer's first-half equaliser, as he towered over Levi Colwill to restore our lead and ultimately win the match for the Reds.

Second in our poll was Sofyan Amrabat, who anchored our midfielder effectively and was voted for by nine per cent of those who took part in our poll.

The Moroccan was a key pillar in front of the defence and made crucial interception after crucial interception to stem Chelsea's threat.

Fernandes and Garnacho got four and six per cent, respectively, after typically dynamic performances against the Blues, but it was McTominay who emerged out in front.

Harry Maguire also notably grabbed four per cent, after yet another terrific defensive display for the Reds.

Congratulations, Scott!
