Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay insists ‘the signs are good’ following the club’s recent resurgence in form.
Following a disappointing start to the season Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side have been much improved in recent weeks and have won five of their last six fixtures in all competitions, rising to seventh in the Premier League and advancing to the Europa League knock-out stages and Carabao Cup quarter-finals.
McTominay insists the signs are positive following Manchester United‘s mini-revival, and says the club will continue to seek improvements as they head towards the ‘business end of the season’.
“In terms of the team, I feel we’re much, much brighter,” McTominay told manutd.com. “The signs are good, the signs are positive and 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 [to discuss formations and tactics], 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.”
United return to Premier League action this weekend with a trip to face a Sheffield United side who have exceeded all expectations since promotion to the top flight so far, though McTominay is a doubt through injury.
Chris Wilder’s newly-promoted side currently sit fifth in the division ahead of Sunday’s meeting at Bramall Lane, one point and two places above Solskjaer’s side following an impressive start to the campaign.
