United legend Paul Scholes was unimpressed by Fred’s and McTominay’s performance on the pitch at Old Trafford on Sunday.
Paul Scholes believes Scott McTominay and Fred are to be blamed for United’s 1-0 defeat to Arsenal on Sunday.
‘It’s as poor as I’ve seen Manchester United at Old Trafford to be honest with you,’ Scholes told Premier League Productions.
‘You have to give Arsenal credit they were very good but on other hand you have to expect more from United and the two midfield players especially.
‘I said at half-time if you’re going to get your best, most creative players who can score goals on the ball then the two in midfield have to have some kind of possession and some kind of control but the quality was missing from them two.
‘They were playing as centre halves not central midfield players. There was a lack of fight, a lack of spirit, a lack of determination to get balls into the box, to create chances like you’d expect with 10 minutes to go.
‘They ran out of ideas and only had two shots on target, one of which was Matic on his right-foot. It’s a disappointing afternoon but one they’ll have to bounce back from.’
The Red Devils only secured seven points from their last six games and are currently 15th in the Premier League standings.
