The answer Manchester United’s midfield problem could already be in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad, club legend Paul Scholes has said.
Speaking to Webby and O’Neill , Scholes said: “You mention McTominay, I think he’s the best one for that role out of the four of them, I’d definitely go for him.
“I think he’s got everything, he’s athletic, he can get around the pitch, he’s got great ability as well. He’s capable of sitting in that position.
“Ole doesn’t seem to be able to get the balance right in that team. Is he going to play that one with the rest around him, and have Pogba next to him who he probably doesn’t trust defensively? Or is he going to play two holding midfield players.
“That’s the difference between United and I think Liverpool and City – they are much more aggressive, more attack-minded.
“I think if Ole can get that right with that balance in the team… going forward I don’t think is a problem. Going forward we’ve got so many exciting players with Cristiano coming.
“Defensively we look good again. I know Maguire is out injured but once he’s back which will be hopefully after the international break. Defensively we look great, everything’s there.
“It just seems to be getting that one person in the middle of the pitch right, that balance of the team. But once he gets that, I think we’ll be alright.
“You think of City going away to Chelsea, they play one holding midfield player and almost play six or seven forward players – that’s the difference in mentality.”
