Scholes Fears For Man United Ahead Of Man City Clash

Former Manchester United midfielder, Paul Scholes has expressed worries over the team ahead of their encounter with Manchester City.

This was after the 2-2 draw away at Atalanta in the Champions League last night which saw Raphael Varane injured.

“They played alright on Saturday but tonight it was a little bit messy,” Scholes said on BT Sport.

“As soon as Varane went off, they seemed to go all over the place, really shaky.

“The quality in the middle of the pitch wasn’t great, giving the ball away.

“Maguire, I don’t know if he’s still injured or got a hangover from the Euros, just doesn’t look right and he’s not with it at the moment.

“I don’t want to say it again, but with a performance like that second half especially no Varane on Saturday it has to be a slight worry.

“If you’re Pep [Guardiola] you would think you have a good chance to win. City think that anyway, at any point it will be a difficult game.

“But with no Varane it is going to be more difficult – saying that, they have the quality to score goals.

“Even in the Liverpool game, they produced three clear chances. United need to defend properly and concentration is key.”
