McTominay: Everyone is fighting for each other
Scott McTominay commended his Manchester United teammates following back-to-back wins against Liverpool and Southampton.
A hard-fought win against the Saints yesterday was settled by a single moment of magic from Bruno Fernandes.
The Portuguese finished an excellent team move on 55 minutes, sidefooting home Diogo Dalot's cross following good work in the build-up by Anthony Elanga and Jadon Sancho.
United midfielder McTominay - who recovered from a second-half injury scare to complete the full 90 minutes - was quick to praise his teammates for their reaction following the 'reality check' the Reds got in the Brentford defeat a fortnight ago.
"So far, we're getting that reaction from the boys," he said following Saturday's win.
"Everyone's fighting and digging in for each other. And sometimes that's what you've got to do, you've to win ugly."
The Scotland international believes the manner in which the Reds have bounced back following our previous away game shows character and team spirit.
But he wants to see more in our next two top-flight encounters.
"It takes a lot to come back from that [Brentford loss] as a team and fight, and we just can't let that dip now.
"[The wins] are pleasing, [but] we're not getting carried away. We need to make sure that the fire we had for Liverpool and this game is still there, it can't go out against Leicester or Arsenal."
McTominay also had his say on new signing Casemiro, who made his United debut against Southampton, playing the final 10 minutes plus injury time after replacing Elanga.
"To learn off somebody like him who has won pretty much everything in the game is amazing," he said.
"His mentality, the way he's so firm with everything that he does, an amazing footballer who can help us so much and be one of our main players."
