Despite facing a 1-0 defeat on the night, Manchester United were far from poor against Barcelona in the first leg of the Champions League quarter-final tie.

The visitors bagged an early goal after Luke Shaw deflected a Luis Suarez header into his own net, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men fought back expertly, keeping the Catalans on their toes for the rest of the game.

While Barca did enjoy a majority of the possession, the Red Devils were quite impressive in the middle of the park, with Fred and Scott McTominay dominating the proceedings.

McTominay was especially singled out after the full-time whistle, with fans and pundits alike hailing the shift the 22-year-old put in against one of the best teams in the world.
