Marcus Rashford also picked up an injury early on but was forced to play.
In an after match press,McTominay praised the resilience of his teammates and highlighted the impact of the supporters, who created a rousing atmosphere inside Old Trafford.
”Of course it’s never easy losing three players in the first half. It’s an absolute credit to the boys for handling a game of this magnitude so, so well,” said the midfielder, who himself only started because Nemanja Matic suffered a muscle injury in training.
”As soon as the boss asks you to be ready you have to be ready. You want to play for the boys and hopefully I did that as well as I could today.
”Last year was a great experience to win that game 2-1 vs Liverpool], this year we fell short. It’s always frantic in the middle of the pitch. It was a bit of a disruptive match.
”It’s not easy [losing three players in the first half], never mind one player getting taken off in the first half. We’ve got boys on the bench, myself, Andreas Perrera and Fred who are dying to get minutes.
”The fans were immense today, I’ve never played in an atmosphere like that today.
”It’s United fans thick and thin. You’re a Manchester United player and they are that 12th man.” he said
