Scholes insists goals will flow for Man Utd after Spurs stalemate

Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes is confident the goals will come after last night's 0-0 draw at Tottenham.

"We didn't create as many chances as we would have liked today, but we know we're an attacking team and the goals will come sooner or later," Scholes told MUTV.

Scholes wasn't too disappointed with the draw at White Hart Lane, especially after leaders Liverpool dropped two points at home to Hull.

"We'd like to have won the game, but it didn't happen for us today," he added. "This is a tough place to come and we have to take a point in the end.

"We'd like to have been a little closer to Liverpool, but they'll be disappointed not to have beaten Hull and ours is probably a better point then theirs."

After another 20 minutes under his belt against Spurs, Scholes is hoping to continue his return to fitness during the Club World Cup in Japan.

The 34-year-old added: "I've played 20 minutes against Blackburn, half a game against Aalborg and 20 minutes today, so hopefully in Japan I can get 80 or 90 minutes in one of the games and kick on from that."
