There were plenty of positives for Manchester United fans to dissect during the weekend win against Chelsea at Old Trafford.

United returned from their summer break in style as they shook off their first-half rustiness to eventually power past Frank Lampard's side on the opening match day of the new season.



Even at his young age the United midfielder showcased the backbone which has been glaringly absent from the first-team set-up in recent years.



Whereas before it seemed McTominay was in the United team to fill in a gap, he has now one of the players who Solskjaer will trust the most.

An articulate talker and confident young man, McTominay's stature in the first-team seems to have come on leaps and bounds in recent months, the growing trust from Solskjaer clearly playing its own part in his tremendous development.

Three impressive debuts helped to lay the foundation for a successful team performance, while the attacking quality of Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford proved to be the difference.

The attacking acumen on display will have greatly pleased Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as he watched his side wrap up a comfortable three points, but one thing which will have delighted him more was the character on display.
