Keane’s former Old Trafford team-mate Scholes also sounded the alarm. “It was a shocking start for Man United and the first half was really chaotic,” Scholes said of Premier League Productions.
“The signs were there from the first minutes that it was going to be bad.
“McTominay was always trying to run the ball, ridiculous. The quality in midfield was really poor.
“I was glad he didn’t get sent off but I think he was a bit lucky. Again he runs with the ball…absolutely ridiculous.
“It could easily have been a red card. The quality in midfield was far from good enough, but we have seen that in recent years with these two players.
“With Fred and McTominay, he [the manager] going to have to go with only one of them, but even one of them is probably too much.
“Fred gives the ball away all the time and McTominay constantly tries to run with the ball and then gives it away. Pass it to your best players! It’s not that hard. It’s criminal on a day like today.”
