Paul Scholes urges Erik ten Hag not to start Manchester United star vs Everton

Former England international Paul Scholes has urged Erik ten Hag not to start Bruno Fernandes against Everton after his Omonia performance.

Scholes believes Fernandes needs a break from the starting lineup following a string of poor performances.

The Portugal international underperformed against Manchester City last weekend and was drab again in Cyprus against Omonia in the Europa League.

Erik ten Hag hauled him off at 61st minute for Anthony Martial. Two minutes later, the France star scored Manchester United’s second goal.

Scholes thinks it’s time Ten Hag drops him from the starting lineup, which would hand Fred or Scott McTominay to pair alongside Casemiro at DM and enable Christian Eriksen advance higher up the pitch.

Speaking after the tight win at Omonia, Scholes said: “Casemiro played in a three at Real Madrid all the time. He needs help. He will need Mctominay or Fred with him.

“It might be a time for Bruno Fernandes to have a rest on Sunday.”

Paul Scholes isn’t convinced by Manchester United‘s tight win over Omonia and doubts if the Red Devils will be confident enough to face Everton.

“No,” Scholes replied when asked if he has seen enough to take confidence into the Everton game. “Erik was right about the wingers being too static. Sancho needs a fast left back and centre forward to link with. Antony looks like a one trick pony. ”

Manchester United will embark on another trip on Sunday when they face Everton at the Goodison Park in the Premier League.
