Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says Scott McTominay is an indispensable member of his side after his starring midfield role in the win against Tottenham and believes he 'knows what Manchester United means'.

The Red Devils eased the pressure on the under-fire Norwegian by beating Spurs on Jose Mourinho's return to Old Trafford, and McTominay was dominant in midfield to help his side pick up a valuable three points.

Scottish international McTominay had been out with an ankle injury for the last month but returned to the starting line up to boost Solskjaer's ranks, and provided a new energy for the team to frustrate Spurs.

United have not been able to call upon midfielder Paul Pogba, who has been out since September, but Solskjaer was relieved to have McTominay back in contention and he praised his natural fitness to slot back in despite a lack of game time since he returned to training.

His dynamism was crucial for United as he made three interceptions, two tackles and ten ball recoveries - a performance Solskjaer hailed as 'top class', saying his attitude was exactly what he looks for in a Manchester United player.

'He would've suited my squad when I played, he would've fit right in that squad because he's come through the academy, he's one of ours, he's one of the locals and knows what Man United means.

It doesn't get any easier after coming through a tough Spurs test, as United will travel to the Etihad on Saturday to face champions and rivals Manchester City.
