McTominay set a record with yellow in the first minute

Scott McTominay's desire to have an early impact on the Manchester United-Newcastle United duel in the Premier League led him to make history.

The Scottish international was booked out just 24 seconds before the end of the game at Old Trafford when he missed a challenge and caught Sean Longstaff with his bolts.

Referee Kevin Friend showed McTominay a yellow card. This was the fastest warning in a Premier League game since 2006-07 when accurate time data was collected.

United fell back on a goal from Sean's brother Matty Longstaff before Anthony Martial equalized and Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford gave the hosts a 3-1 lead.
