There’s something lovely about seeing a ball that is just perfectly struck, and this could be the perfect example from Scott McTominay.
It looks like he’s going to see who fancies getting in the way of a thumped ball as it breaks to him, but he just hits it so sweetly and it flies into the back of the net before anyone can react:

It’s just a beautifully satisfying goal to watch, although you can fully imagine that Southampton have now had enough of this.
