Speaking about McTominay’s display, the Arsenal legend Henry told Amazon Prime: ‘The symbol of the night was McTominay.

‘He responded really well. The energy, the desire, the commitment is what you want from a player of this club.

‘You’re always going to be compared to the players who came before. But what I like about him is his maturity, on the field and off the field. 

‘He played really well but he’s also thinking about the team’s performance. He is maturing a lot as a leader in this squad.’

Belgium boss Roberto Martinez shared the same opinion as Henry, adding: ‘He is all action, he makes the front four better. It’s important when you have creative players that you have other players who are willing to work.
