Man Utd icon Scholes raps Lindelof for Southampton equaliser

Manchester United legend Paul Scholes felt Victor Lindelof fell short for Southampton's equaliser in last night's 2-2 draw.

Michael Obafemi held off Lindelof at the far post to turn home a 96th minute equaliser to hand Ralph Hasenhuttl's men a share of the spoils at Old Trafford.

That goal could prove costly when all is said and done at the end of the campaign.

"Lindelof, I think, has to be a stronger there," Scholes told Premier League Productions.

"He has to be goal side. He allows himself to get a little bit bullied by the centre forward as he manages gets a foot in.

"I don't think Lindelof really reads the danger there as he should do as a centre half."
