Manchester United make history

Manchester United went 1-0 down to Brentford on Saturday after 26 minutes thanks to Mathias Jensen.

The Red Devils dominated possession for much of the game but struggled to create an awful lot. In a last-ditch attempt to salvage a point, Erik ten Hag brought on Scott McTominay and played him up front.

The central midfielder is no stranger to scoring goals in a more advanced role for his national side and he came up trumps vs the Bees. McTominay put United back on level terms after 93 minutes before scoring the winning goal four minutes later.

Following the game, it was revealed that each of McTominay’s last 10 Premier League goals for Manchester United have come at Old Trafford. Only Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has had a longer run of goals come consecutively on home soil in the competition for the Red Devils (11 between March 1999 – April 2000).

Elsewhere, it was confirmed post-Brentford that for the first time in their Premier League history, Manchester United have trailed going into the 90th minute of a match but then gone on to win.
