McTominay was flying into challenges straight away, with heavy rain in Leeds making for an old-school clash between two fierce rivals.
After 14 minutes, the midfielder flew into a challenge with Leeds defender Robin Koch, in which the Leeds defender needed medical assistance to the head after a forearm smash.
McTominay escaped with a warning from the referee, while Koch continued but was later substituted in the 31st minute due to concerns over concussion.
McTominay was eventually cautioned in the 78th minute after getting nowhere near the ball with a tackle on Joe Gelhardt.

The home-grown United star was also involved in a fracas as full-time approached but remained on the pitch for the whole 90 minutes.
A vital win for United means they are now in fourth place, four points above West Ham below them.
Harry Maguire, Bruno Fernandes, Fred and Anthony Elanga were all on the scoresheet in a feisty encounter – United’s next game is in the Champions League last-16 at Atletico Madrid on Wednesday.
