For the second consecutive game, Jadon Sancho was included in United’s starting lineup.
The English player made a significant contribution to his team’s success, cleverly passing the ball to set up McTominay’s opening goal, and impressing everyone with his performance.
Erik ten Hag was very complimentary of his players when speaking to the media after the game.
He said, per Manchester United’s official website: “That you can deliver this in a third game in six days is a real credit to the team because it was a great performance – great, entertaining football and a win, so I’m really happy with it.
“But we have to be more clinical, more ruthless in the box of the opponent. I think this game should already have been finished by half-time. We didn’t but it was a brilliant performance.
“That’s very good: if you play three games in six days and can deliver this, that’s a big compliment to the team. We were very good in and out of possession – there were many players on the pitch who played at a high level.”
United return to action on Thursday when they take on Sevilla in their Europa League quarter-final first leg tie.
