“Probably first-half as a team [best display under Rangnick],” Scott McTominay told Amazon Prime Video Sport after the Burnley win.
“We were a bit flat second-half for whatever reason. We need to get that for a full 90 minutes which we haven’t really had this year. But we are learning and adapting.
“The game against Newcastle was difficult and we have to bounce back from that. The manager said we set the record for the most amount of turnovers in the league. We had to keep the ball better.
“Goals help energy. If we bang in two or three at Newcastle it gives the whole team energy. It is so important.
“Now is the time we really start stepping up and doing much, much better. The manager is so demanding and we play for Man Utd, it is what we have to do.”
Man United managed to bounce back from the Newcastle draw by beating Burnley in the last game of 2021.
McTominay was a key player in that, scoring the opener and helping Cristiano Ronaldo find the net for the third goal.
