The 37-year-old is not complaining. With 10 Premier League titles under his belt, Scholes knows the best way to maximise the potential from every squad.
"You always like to see new players come in even if they're in your position because it's healthy for the team and exciting to play with the new players," he told manutd.com.
"We've got strength everywhere in the squad. We've struggled with injuries to defenders, but when we have everyone fit there are two teams that the manager has available to him that could compete in the Premier League and cup competitions.
"As players, we know when we get given our chance we have to take it. If you don't, you'll be out of the team, simple as that."
