'There's no point beating PSG if you don't play well against RB Leipzig' - McTominay calls for Man Utd to replicate Champions League display


Scott McTominay Man Utd 2020-21

Scott McTominay says there isno point in Manchester United beating Paris Saint-Germain if they do not play well against RB Leipzig and has called on his team-matesto replicate their impressive display at Parc des Princes.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side built on a 4-1 victory away at Newcastle by overcoming the French champions, with an effective combination of defensive solidity and attacking fluency proving too much for last season's finalists to cope with.

The Red Devils were unable to make it three wins on the bounce after being held to a 0-0 draw by Chelsea on Saturday, but they seem to be settling into a groove after a slow start to the 2020-21 campaign which saw questions asked over their ability to compete with the elite.

McTominay has played a key role in United's mini-revival alongside Fred in the middle of the park, and has urged the rest of his team-mates to keep up their high standards when Leipzig arrive at Old Traffordin midweek.

“With a big win on Wednesday, it would be massive for everybody and the confidence that we are getting each week, and match by match, it would be really beneficial for the squad,” he told United Daily.

“There's no point going away to Paris, when it is a big game and the whole world is watching, and doing really well, and then not playing as well or doing all the right things that got you the win in Paris at home against Leipzig.”

Leipzig are sitting top of Group H on goal difference at the moment, having opened their latest European journey with a 2-0 win over Istanbul Basaksehir.

Julian Nagelsmann's men will be protecting an unbeaten record in Manchester having also reached the Bundesliga summit with four wins and a draw, and McTominay is well aware of the threat a team which made it through to the Champions League semi-finals in 2019-20 will pose the Red Devils.

“We know the intensity that they will bring,”the Scottish midfielderadded. "They are a terrific team, I watched them a lot last year with a lot of the coaches in the Champions League games that they played.
