Scott McTominay, who has been one of the bright sparks in Manchester United slow start to the season, believes the dressing room atmosphere will play a key role in the club’s season and that it is on the up after recent results.
‘In terms of the team, I feel we’re much, much brighter,’ he told The Mirror. ‘There are very positive signs and things are changing. Everybody is looking forward to the next game and wanting that next game to come as soon as possible.
‘We’ve talked about things that we can improve on and how we’re going to try to improve by the end of the season, which is the business end of the season as well.
‘We always have meetings, that’s normal. It’s a normal thing to have meetings and for everybody to discuss, that’s a normal thing and the sign of a healthy dressing room.
‘Boys speaking among it in the changing room, saying what they think we can improve on and what are good ideas as well. There’s plenty going on, it’s not a place to be quiet and in your shell. It’s time for people to really step up and start doing their jobs as well.’
McTominay sustained an ankle injury in his last outing and is fighting to be fit for a tough run of games coming up.
Manchester United return to Premier League action on Sunday with a trip to Brammall Lane to take on Sheffield United. Sheffield are currently fifth, a point above United after a brilliant start to the season but with all to play for this weekend to maintain or break momentum for either club.
