‘They shouldn’t be at this club’: Paul Scholes rages at Manchester United duo after defeat to Palace

Manchester United suffered another low point after they were demolished 4-0 by Crystal Palace on Monday night at Selhurst Park.

There is already big pressure on Erik ten Hag’s shoulders amid doubts about his future at the club, but you feel this latest defeat was the worst of the lot.

Paul Scholes was left seething by what he saw and how Manchester United were ‘so easy to play against that it’s untrue’.

Yes, the European chasers had several key players missing, but it still shouldn’t account for the team producing such a shambolic display, especially from a defensive aspect.

Crystal Palace scored two goals in either half, with the home team having 18 efforts on goal. Ten of which were on target.

Given the injuries at centre-back, the experienced Casemiro was deployed at the heart of the defence, alongside another veteran, Jonny Evans.

The midfield consisted of teenager Kobbie Mainoo and playmaker Christian Eriksen playing a much deeper role.

But Scholes admitted that Casemiro was a ’tough watch’ and how he spent most of his time on his backside, with transfer target Michael Olise causing him many issues, as he told Premier League Productions (06/05/24 at 9:55 pm).

Another player he singled out was Eriksen and how he didn’t have the physicality to compete in the middle of the park.
