Ole Gunnar Solskjaer praises young midfielder after Leicester City win

Ole praises McTominay's display against Leicester

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has heaped praise on midfielder Scott McTominay, who produced a standout performance against Leicester City on Saturday.

The Scotland international has produced a mixed bag of performances this season but he came up with a strong display against the Foxes, where he was regularly intercepting the play from the opposition.

As a result, McTominay was handed with the man of the match accolade and speaking after the game, Solskjaer spoke about the midfielder's leadership qualities, he told: "If teams are trying to intimidate us, he [McTominay] is there. He is a leader."

United did not provide a regular threat on goal against the Foxes and the only goal of the game came through a Marcus Rashford penalty in the eighth minute of the encounter.

The Red Devils' win ended a three-match winless streak in the Premier League. They are presently occupying the fourth position on a temporary basis until tomorrow where Arsenal, Everton and West Ham United could surpass them.
