The 86th minute saw McTominay head home Dalot’s cross to give United their third Premier League victory of the month. McTominay consistently saves Man U whenever they need a goal. Barcelona’s most valuable player this season has been Lamine Yamal, who contributes vitally to the team’s offensive output.When Facundo Pellistri scored and assisted on a goal in a La Liga trip to Barcelona, he also became the youngest player to do so since Samuel Eto’o (2000).
