Jamie O'Hara Reckons Scott McTominay Would Get Into Liverpool Team

It has not been a good season for Manchester United, and much of that has been down to the failings of their midfield. While the defence has been reasonably solid and the attack has clicked at times, the middle third has been an area of concern.

They have failed to supply a pacy front line with any real service, while simultaneously allowing the opposition to permeate them with ease at times.

Much of this is down to personnel. Nemenja Matic is the shadow of the player he once was, while Fred has been a disaster since arriving from Shakhtar Donetsk. Scott McTominay has played well at times, but still has plenty to prove if he is to be part of the Manchester United project long-term.

One person has certainly been very impressed. Former Spurs midfielder Jamie O'Hara was speaking on talkSPORT when he claimed that the Scotland international is a future United captain, and would have no problem getting into the current Liverpool team.

For 22-years of age for me he is a future Manchester United captain, I really think he's that good.

I think he gets in Liverpool's team. Look, he might not play every game but I think he gets in Liverpool's side in terms of the midfield that they've got and where he would fit in.

I think he's as good as Henderson and I think he's going to be better than Henderson.

I think if Liverpool had McTominay he would be playing, maybe not week-in week-out, but he'd definitely be a big part of their side.

Let's not get away from the fact he's 22 years of age and he's playing for Man United in the centre of the park, and I think he's handled himself great. He's scoring and you can see he wants to play.

He celebrates when he's not even playing, you see him running down the side with his bib on to celebrate with the team.

While Henderson has been derided at times, he is a Champions League winning captain. He certainly would seem well ahead of the United man at the minute.

You would also imagine that McTominay would struggle to find playing time in a midfield containing the likes of Fabinho, Wijnaldum, Keita, and Oxlade-Chamberlain.
