Manchester United midfielder Antonio Valencia has praised the return of veteran Paul Scholes to the line-up.

The 37-year old is back in the fray after coming out of retirement over a week ago and his midfield mate Valencia is thrilled to have Scholes back in the centre of the pitch in the absence of Darren Fletcher and Tom Cleverley as United strive for another league title.

"We still have some longer absences like Darren Fletcher and Tom Cleverley so it has given us a bit of respite to have Paul Scholes back," he told MUTV.

"It is all right talking about three teams but you can't take out Arsenal and Chelsea, so that is why we have to put our foot to the floor and push as hard as we can."
