Paul Ince tells Scott McTominay where his Manchester United game must improve – Manchester Evening News

Paul Ince has described exactly what is missing from Scott McTominay’s game at the moment.

The Manchester United midfielder put in a stellar performance against Burnley on Thursday night, getting himself on the scoresheet in the 3-1 win at Old Trafford.

Ince however believes that goal-scoring is one area of his game which McTominay has been lacking in.

Speaking to DAZN, the former United midfielder assessed the Scot and said: “I think even last year he was one of United’s better players.

“I think with Fred because they’re kind of playing two holding, you had [Paul] Pogba, [Bruno] Fernandes and he wasn’t really allowed to venture forward and that was always the problem for Ole; whether he played one holding with two forward [or vice-versa].

“I think you saw the experience of [Nemanja] Matic who has played there all his career and knows that holding position role and that allows him to venture forward.

“You’ve got to do that as a Manchester United player, Scholesey did it, Keaney did it, Robson did it.

“All these great players did it and I think that’s something that’s always been missing from his game.

“People say he’s still young but he’s 25, 26 now, he should know what type of player he wants to be. If he can add goals like he did today then he can be a very, very good player for United.”

Ince had earlier told Premier League Productions that McTominay had the potential to replace Harry Maguire as captain of United, due to the centre half’s stuttering performances of late.
