Scott McTominay mengaku bahwa laga kontra Spurs adalah laga yang berat. Gelandang tengah Manchester United itu mengaku timnya bermain tenang kala sedang posisi tertinggal.

"Pada babak pertama, permainan kami jelas yakni tetap tenang, tidak perlu panik. Kami tahu bahwa kami memiliki karakter yang hebat di tim ini," katanya kepada Sky Sports.

"Di babak pertama kami kurang mendominasi, tapi di babak kedua gantian kami ambil kendali. Begitulah sepakbola," lanjutnya.

Scott McTominay nyatanya membuat satu kesalahan besar di babak pertama. Dirinya kedapatan mengayunkan tangannya ke belakang yang menghantam muka Son Heung-min.

Bola sempat bergulir, hingga akhirnya berujung gol yang dibuat Edinson Cavani. Sayangnya, wasit melihat VAR dan menganulir gol itu, karena ulah McTominay kepada Son.

"Secara pribadi saya bukan penggemar VAR tetapi wasit harus membuat keputusan. Semua orang membuat kesalahan dan itu bagian tak terpisahkan dari permainan," jelasnya.

"Gol yang dianulir adalah ketidakadilan total, tetapi kami hanya harus melanjutkan permainan. Mendapatkan tiga poin dalam pertandingan yang sangat sulit itu menyenangkan," tutupnya.
