United are at Goodison Park later today.
"They are a better team than they have shown so far," Scholes told ManUtd.com. "David Moyes has put together a group of good players and they've definitely improved over the years.
"Defensively they're very good - they don't concede often. We found that out at their place last season when, after going 1-0 up, we didn't really create many chances and lost 3-1. They haven't scored many so far this season - hopefully they're not saving them for this weekend!"
