Trevor Sinclair had great praise for Manchester United star Scott McTominay after beating West Ham on Tuesday night

Man United booked their spot in the final eight of the FA Cup with a 1-0 win over the Hammers thanks to McTominay’s goal in extra time

The target was McTominay’s seventh goal of the season, which means he’s the third top scorer for the Red Devils this season, along with strikers Anthony Martial and Edinson Cavani

The 24-year-old midfielder has taken his game to a new level this year and Sinclair is very excited about the progress the Scotland international continues to make

Sinclair told talkSPORT: “I’m a huge fan of his. He brings intensity, he is combative, his passing range is brilliant, he is a box-to-box midfielder, his game changes from right to left – Marcus Rashford receives often great balls

“I’ve sung his praises all season I really rate him as a player. Whether he’s in there with Fred or whoever he’s doing a good job. He learns all the time and I look forward to him because he is made up of the right things that he wants to learn ”

However, McTominay would run out of space in West Ham midfield if he moved there, Sinclair believes

The hosts of Sinclair and talkSPORT, Jim White and Simon Jordan, spoke about Declan Rice’s ability to break into the Red Devils midfield – a challenge to which Paul Pogba, Bruno Fernandes, Donny van de Beek, Fred and Nemanja Matic belong

Jordan suggested that Rice might have to contend with the transition at Old Trafford at first, as he is “a big fish in a little pond” at the moment in West Ham, but Sinclair firmly believes the English star ” take United’s side “

However, if McTominay went to the East London Club, Rice and also the Hammers’ top scorer this season, Tomas Soucek, would be in the pecking order before him

Sinclair added, “Soucek and Rice are keeping McTominay off the West Ham side while Rice is entering the Manchester United side

“If that’s a big fish in a small pond, I don’t know exactly what you’re talking about, Simon

“Rice joins McTominay [at Man United] To me he’s better than Fred and if you look at McTominay joining the West Ham side, he won’t be playing in any of the front midfield positions. Soucek is the top scorer at the football club and there is an argument that Rice is better than McTominay

“Both teams play a 4-2-3-1 I think the two West Ham midfielders Soucek and Rice will stay, but I think if Rice goes to Manchester United he’ll either take over from McTominay or Fred ”
