Scott McTominay makes demand to Man Utd team-mates after Man City win

Scott McTominay says Manchester United must keep pushing if they want to bag a top-five finish.

The Red Devils secured a memorable 2-0 win over Manchester City on Sunday afternoon.

Anthony Martial slotted home after a sublime free kick from Bruno Fernandes, who beautifully chipped the ball into his team-mate’s path.

McTominay grabbed United’s second deep into injury time after Ederson’s botched clearance. The Scotland international lobbed City’s goalkeeper from 35 yards out.

Speaking after the clash, the Scotland international urged his team-mates to keep fighting their way into the Champions League spots.

"That was such a sweet moment,” he told Sky Sports. “Credit to the boys. Sticky first 20 minutes and we had to keep going.

"We will take confidence from that but in the coming weeks we have got to keep the run going.

"It's such a beautiful feeling to score like that in front of the fans.

“But we can’t get too carried away and need to keep pushing for the Champions League."

City talisman Sergio Aguero thought he’d got his side back on level terms just after the break.

But despite Raheem Sterling's clever pass, the Argentina international was deemed to be fractionally offside.

Bernardo Silva admitted in the aftermath that his side weren’t at the races.

"It was a bad game for us. Not acceptable,” Silva explained.

“We didn’t start badly and were playing quite well until we conceded.

"We know how good the Manchester United players are on the counter-attack, very aggressive. So our performance was not acceptable.

"We will have to watch the game back and listen to what Pep has to say. But a team like ours cannot lose this many games. We need to check what’s not going right and try not to make so many mistakes."
