Scott McTominay bagged a dramatic brace as Manchester United secured a huge come-from-behind victory over Brentford.
McTominay, who entered the fray in the 87th minute, cancelled out Mathias Jensen’s opener, having been gifted a goal by Andre Onana.
Diogo Dalot’s strike was parried by goalkeeper Thomas Strakosha, with Brentford’s defence failing to properly clear the ball.
The ball fell to McTominay, who controlled it before slotting the ball into the bottom corner in the 93rd minute.
Man United then scored the winner from a set-piece as Bruno Fernandes lofted a ball into the box, which was met by Harry Maguire, who headed it into the goal mouth, where McTominay headed home.
