Erik ten Hag praised Scott McTominay as an example for others after the super sub sealed Manchester United's belief-boosting win at fellow Champions League hopefuls Aston Villa.
McTominay graduated from United's academy, making his debut in 2017 before making his first international appearance a year later.
Youth beginnings to first team breakthrough
From the age of five, McTominay has been a part of Manchester United's academy, signing his first professional contract in 2013.
The midfielder played in the under-18s through to the under-21s before becoming a regular in the academy side.
In May 2017, McTominay made his Premier League debut, appearing as a substitute in a 2-0 loss to Arsenal. In the same season, he started Manchester United's final game of the season, helping secure a 2-0 home win over Crystal Palace.
The following season he became a regular feature within the Man United squad.
In September 2017, McTominay made his first appearance of the season, in a 4-1 EFL Cup win over Burton Albion.
The midfielder made his European debut against Benfica in the Champions League, helping his side see out a 1-0 victory. Two days after his European appearance, McTominay signed a contract extension which would keep him at the club until 2021.
First team regular
In the 2018/19 season, McTominay started to make a name for himself, with pundits highlighting his performances. It helped earn him a contract extension until 2023.
The midfielder scored his first goal for the side in a 2-1 loss to Wolverhampton Wanderers and would add another in a 1-1 draw with Huddersfield.
During the following 2019/20 season, McTominay scored his first Old Trafford goal in a 1-1 draw with Arsenal. He added to his goal tally at Norwich and at home to Brighton.
However, his season was marred by a knee ligament injury, with the midfielder missing two months of the campaign.
After returning from injury, McTominay netted against Club Brugge in the last 32 of the Europa League. The Scotsman would also go on to score another Premier League goal, this time against Manchester City, with his 40-yarder completing a 2-0 win.
His displays that season earned him another contract extension, with his deal now running until 2025.
McTominay scored his first brace that season, bagging two against Leeds United in the space of three minutes.
In January, McTominay wore the Manchester United captain's armband for the first time in an FA Cup fixture against Watford. The midfielder would go on to score the only goal to send his through to the next round.
Although McTominay was born in England, he has Scottish ancestry through his father, Frank, who was born in Helensburgh.
After England showed no interest, Alex McLeish called McTominay up for his senior international debut, with him appearing against Costa Rica in March 2018. He made his first competitive appearance for Scotland in September 2018 during a 2-0 win against Albania.
McTominay is a member of Scotland's squad for Euro 2020 - the country's first international competition since 1998.
