Paul Scholes believes that Manchester United can win the Premier League this season after another away win, MySportDab reports.
The Red Devils secured a sixth straigh away victory at Sheffield United on Thursday night.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side came back to defeat Chris Wilder’s team 3-2 to move five points behind Liverpool with a game in hand.
Marcus Rashford scored a brace, while Anthony Martial scored his first goal of the new Premier League Season.
However, Scholes has claimed that United’s attacking line-up can help them launch a title charge.
‘If nine or ten players can always be fit for the next 26 Premier League matches they will be there or close enough. They have a new exciting style of play,’ Scholes said.
‘I think Ole Gunnar Solksjaer has changed his formations and players so many times. For five matches in 2019, he refused to change the team and it was this same team tonight without the players in Left-back and goalkeeper and it worked.
‘4-2-3-1 is a formation that suits the team. Fernandes is the number 10 role player feeding the likes of Greenwood, Martial, and Rashford. How good does that sound? They’re one of the best finishers in Europe when they create chances.
‘The problem is regaining possession and keeping the ball with Paul and Matic. They both need to control the game, Fernandes needs that to play better upfront.’
The Red Devils as expected failed to score the opening goal and went behind on Thursday night as Dean Henderson’s error allowed David McGoldrick to score an early goal for Sheffield United.
But, Rashford and Martial turned it around with two goals before half-time.
Rashford then scored his second from Pogba’s pass to give United a two-goal lead but the Blades scored back in the second-half stoppage time through McGoldrick.
However, Michael Owen believes that playing the likes of Pogba, Rashford and Fernandes in the Red Devils team on a regular basis is a must for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to deliver trophies.
Manchester United have now won a surprising six matches in a row away from home but their focus is now at Old Trafford where they have won only once in the league.
The Red Devils face Leeds United in a derby match on Sunday hoping to move up the table.
