Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay has lauded the progression shown by his side under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, though he admits some 'sloppy results' have let them down.

The Scotsman's influence has continued to grow since Solskjaer's arrival in December 2018, so much so that he's failed to feature in just four of their 29 league outings so far this campaign.

The Red Devils are well placed to secure a spot in next season's Champions League - with an eight-point gap between themselves and fifth place West Ham - and McTominay believes the team is heading in the right direction, though he concedes inconsistency has cost them at times.

"We've got a good group of players with top, top quality," he told ESPN.

"People are quite quick to forget how well we've done at times. It's the sloppy results that have let us down. This team is evolving. It's not a time to panic."

McTominay's form with Man Utd has seen him cement his place in the Scotland senior squad, and he played the full 90 minutes in all three of Steve Clarke's side's March internationals.

The 24-year-old is preparing to represent his country at this summer's delayed Euro 2020 - their first major tournament appearance since the 1998 World Cup - though he's not getting ahead of himself and says he needs to concentrate on improving his game.

"My parents raised me to be humble and hard working," he added. "I'm not perfect every game and I know that.

"I've got a lot to improve on but there's also things I do well so I'm just trying to improve and kick start my game to another level. I just want to do my best. It's about consistency and playing well over the course of a season."
