Paul Scholes says Man United can still “beat teams like Chelsea” despite losing 2-0 to Man City

Paul Scholes thinks that Manchester United can beat Chelsea – despite yesterday’s latest poor performance against rivals City.

The Red Devils were outclassed during their 2-0 defeat to Pep Guardiola’s side at Old Trafford.

Scholes, however, was nonplussed by the defeat – insisting that it’s nothing new – before tipping United to go and beat Thomas Tuchel’s league leaders later this month.

Appearing as a pundit on DAZN, he said: “Does anything change? Are we really surprised by United being short of City and Liverpool?

“I don’t think they’re massively short of Chelsea though.

“I think they could go and beat teams like Chelsea.

“And I think the same now is going to happen again – we’ll struggle against the big teams, we might go on a run now – beat all the teams we expect to and think we’re a good team again.”
