Man Utd fans love Scott McTominay yelling at team-mates 'be aggressive' despite being 3-0 up to RB Leipzig in thumping

SCOTT McTOMINAY won the hearts and minds of Manchester United fans as footage of his demands to 'be aggressive' in the clash with RB Leipzig emerged.

United were 3-0 up and kicking off after Marcus Rashford's second with only 12 minutes left.

McTominay tells team-mates: "We got to be aggressive, 12 minutes left, let's go."

But perhaps McTominay was mindful of the way Tottenham had blown a 3-0 lead against West Ham with just 11 minutes remaining a fortnight ago.

With no fans in the eerily-silent Old Trafford in Wednesday's Champions League encounter, viewers could clearly hear the Scotland midfielder demanding more from his team-mates.

United were in stunning form to demolish the Bundesliga leaders and last term's Champions League semi-finalists.

Mason Greenwood got the ball rolling on 21 minutes.

Rashford added two goals in five minutes around the three-quarter mark to turn it into a rout.

But, with McTominay demanding more, United refused to put their feet up as Anthony Martial's 87th-minute penalty before Rashford completed his hat-trick on 90 minutes.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side have won both their opening Champions League group matches – in the so-called group of death against the top two sides, Leipzig at home and away to Paris Saint-Germain.

Hard-working McTominay won the manager's player of the year when Jose Mourinho was boss in 2017.

One United fan said: "No wonder Mourinho loved him. He's the perfect Mourinho player."

United have bounced back superbly from their 6-1 home mauling against Tottenham.

The spark seems to have coincided with 23-year-old McTominay and Fred shoring up the midfield and offering more protection to out-of-form Harry Maguire and his fellow defenders.

United take on Arsenal at Old Trafford tomorrow.
