KEY POINTS

  • Scott McTominay played all 90 minutes Tuesday
  • Manchester United clinched a crucial away win in the Champions League
  • Bruno Fernandes was Man Utd's stand-in-skipper

Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay played with "one eye" after he lost his contact lens in his side's 2-1 win over Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) in the Champions League on Tuesday, revealed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

McTominay, who started alongside Bruno Fernandes and Fred in the midfield, played all the 90 minutes. While the likes of Paul Pogba, Nemanja Matic and Donny van de Beek were on the bench, McTominay was impressive in the first half, where The Red Devils went 1-0 up, courtesy to stand-in-skipper Fernandes' penalty.

Speaking at the post-match press conference, Solskjaer, singling out 23-year-old McTominay, said, "Scotty played the first-half with one eye as well, that was the most impressive thing because he lost his contact lens. That was impressive."

Man Utd forward Anthony Martial's own goal in the 55th minute handed PSG an equalizer, but Marcus Rashford netted the winner for the Old Trafford side just before the completion of 90 minutes. It was Man Utd's 10th straight away victory at Parc des Princes in all competitions.

Rashford's last three Champions League goals have come in away games, with the last two scored at Parc des Princes.

"He's a good footballer and he's got quality. And he took his goal very well; great turn, good finish and into the corner. He likes that side of the [Parc des Princes] stadium, I think," Solskjaer hailed Rashford during the same press conference.

Rashford returned the favor when he heaped praise on Solskjaer while speaking to Man Utd's official website.

"I think the manager got it spot on today. The system allowed us to express ourselves going forward and to be tight defensively, which I think we did as well as we could. Of course, it’s a big win and a perfect position to be in because we got a lot to improve on as well," Rashford said in the interview.
