McTominay determined to do his best for Solskjaer

Scott McTominay loves working with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and is determined to help the under-fire Manchester United manager kick on with Manchester City looming large.

This weekend's trip to the Etihad Stadium comes on the back of a morale-boosting win against Tottenham on Wednesday, when Jose Mourinho returned to Old Trafford touchline for the first time since being sacked last December.

The Portuguese headed back to United at a time when pressure was building on successor Solskjaer, with the club's worst start to a season in 31 years compounded by talk that losses to Spurs and City could see him out of the job.

Renewed

But the 1999 treble hero leads his side to the Etihad Stadium tomorrow evening with renewed confidence, having overseen a deserved 2-1 win against Tottenham thanks to a Marcus Rashford brace.

"I don't read too much into what gets said online or in the press or different things like that," McTominay said of the speculation around Solskjaer that dominated the build-up to Wednesday's match.

"Obviously it's our duty as players to go out there and do our utmost best for him and hopefully we can (put on performances for him) because we love him. We love him as a group as well.

"So hopefully we can start putting in performances that we've deserved.

"And some of the points we've missed out on this year have not represented the level of performance as well, so hopefully we can keep pushing forward now as well."
