Jose Mourinho rained praise down on Scott McTominay after Manchester United inflicted his first defeat as Tottenham Hotspur manager. McTominay had missed the last three United games after suffering an injury in the 3-1 win over Brighton and Hove Albion. The Scotland international put on an impressive shift as United picked up their first win following a run of three games without victory.
“That’s the way we normally do and didn’t lose because of an attacking setup. Because of the way we come to the game by the emotional way, they had more emotion than us, you see for example McTominay performance, the globality of his performance, he was dominant. But then, as I was saying, half-time we finish the first half with a good feeling of a positive result, the feeling of we were playing better than them, much more control in last 10 or 15 minutes. In the second-half, we make that mistake and the game is a different game, after that, one injury here, one injury there, they did well, the referee allowed them to do it.” Mourinho heaped praise on McTominay,
