United lacks balance, says Scholes

Mon 14 December 2020 | 9:05

Former Manchester United midfielder believes that Ole can not find the balance between midfielders and the attackers.

Manchester United

has scored 19 goals in 11 games so far. They are currently sitting on the 8th place, 5 points behind the first team and one game in hand.

Paul Scholes

, Manchester United legend however believes that Ole’s side lacks balance. Scholes particularly speaks about the defensive midfield position of his former club.

Scholes told Premier League Productions:

“You go right back to that Tottenham game where they had a massive shock conceding six goals, they had to change the way they were playing.

“They had to play the two holding midfielders to protect the centre-halves because they were giving chances away all the time.

“I thought [Raheem] Sterling was poor, I thought [Aaron] Wan-Bissaka did well against him.

“Defensively, Wan-Bissaka throws himself into challenges, [Victor] Lindelof was as good as he probably has been and [Harry] Maguire was good.

“They had that protection, but it takes away from the attacking side then because you can’t really think of any chances United created.

“It’s compromising everything, they cannot get the balance right in the team. If they play one holding midfielder they look like they’re going to score goals but look like they’ll concede as well.”

Scholes added:

“They look much more solid with the two holding midfield players but then they don’t look like they’re going to score goals.”
