As usual, some disgruntled Man United fans were beginning to make their way off the Theatre of Dreams before McTominay came on and did the magic.
A thin line had separated Man United from what would have been their worst start to the campaign since 1962 before the late drama.
Two quick stoppage-time double by McTominay turned despair into delirium at Old Trafford as the Red Devils sealed a dramatic comeback over the Bees.
Worthy of note, Erik ten Hag made some late changes in the game in the second half that twisted the course of the game and sharpened United attack.
Three of such changes was Antony coming on the right flanks for Mason Mount while the hero McTominay came on for Sofyan Amrabat.
Another key but unusual substitution in the game was ten Hag’s decision to subbed off Casemiro for Christian Eriksen.
Casemiro looked obviously displeased with the decision to bring him out at the interval but ten Hag wanted a new direction in the game and has spoken candidly about it.

Some pundits have already began to read meanings into what Erik ten Hag said as it was unusual for him to subbed off Casemiro, who is his key man.
MySportDab understand Erik ten Hag is considering some drastic changes in Man United squad at the wake of the disastrous start to the campaign with some players like Marcus Rashford to be affected.
While speculations are rife over Casemiro Vs Christian Eriksen chances at Manchester United now, it is still unclear whether the fortunes of the two players will change as ten Hag press on with his planned tactical change at the club.
Meanwhile, United pulled a sensational comeback over Brentford to overturn a nightmare into a celebration galore thanks to McTominay’s late heroics.
