Paul Scholes still isn’t happy with Man United performances after another late miracle

Scholes still isn't convinced

Paul Scholes has doubled down on recent comments that Manchester United's current performances are a 'worry', despite the Red Devils scoring late to grab a draw against Atalanta in the Champions League.

Ole Gunnar Solskjær's side went behind in the 12th minute after David De Gea failed to hold Josip Iličić's strike, with the Spaniard's error putting the away side under pressure early on.

Solskjaer's men were level on the stroke of half-time when Cristiano Ronaldo - who has now scored five goals in four Champions League fixtures - made the most of Bruno Fernandes' clever back-heel to smash his shot past Juan Musso.

Following a lengthy VAR review, the home side were once again in front thanks to Duván Zapata's clever finish.

However, United scored in added-time to steal a draw after the Portuguese captain found himself on the end of a cross to finish with a stunning volley.

Despite ending the night at the top of Group F, former Red Devils midfielder Scholes has reiterated previous comments that the current performances of Man Utd are a worry.

"Tonight again was a little bit messy, it felt when [Raphaël] Varane went off, it seemed to go all over the place, really shaky," said Scholes.

"The quality in the middle of the pitch wasn't great again, giving the ball away far too often.

"Maguire, I don't know if he's still injured or if he's got a hangover from the Euros, he just doesn't look right, he's just not with it at the minute.

"I don't want to say it again, but with a performance like that, second-half especially, with no Varane on Saturday, it has to be a slight worry."

The Red Devils know that victory against Villarreal on November 23 will ensure that they progress into the knockout stages of the Champions League.
