Man Utd legend Scholes worried about Solskjaer's midfield

Manchester United legend Paul Scholes is worried about Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's midfield.

Despite Sunday's 4-0 win over Chelsea, Scholes thinks Solskjaer could be light in midfield options and must continue playing a counter-attacking system.

He told Optus Sport: 'I'd be worried about that.

"I thought Pereira was a little bit quiet today. The lad has got ability, he's a young player, he's not played much football.

"I think against the better teams in midfield they may get found out. Which is why I'm saying against the better teams – counter-attack.

"I think looking at today they are perfectly set up to be a counter-attacking team.

"I don't think they are the type of team when they play against the top teams, like Chelsea or Manchester City, who are going to go toe-to-toe with them with possession.

"I just don't think they are a good enough team to do that."
