Despite making a bright start under Ole Gunnar Solskjar, former United midfielder Paul Scholes remains skeptical about Victor Lindelof. This is what he had to say.
“You look at the league position and it’s been difficult. This competition there is a lack of shots, a lack of attempts on target,” Scholes told BT Sport following their 3-0 win.
“I think the big problem with this team is the attacking players.
“I think it’s obvious for everyone to see that they lack creativity and I think in the forward areas it’s a real struggle.
“We always want players in the team to take risks but it just looks like the quality isn’t there.
“We’ve spoken about this all season now, probably the last couple of years, in forward areas.
“I think in other areas you’re okay, if Pogba comes back into the midfield with [Scott] McTominay it looks good.
“I think possibly at centre-half they could need a partner for Maguire, although [Axel] Tuanzebe looks a good option. I’m not sure about Lindelof.
“I think everywhere else it’s looking okay but it’s just them forward areas, them creative areas, where it’s a real struggle.”
