Although Ralf Rangnick has been inaugurated as interim coach of Manchester United, Michael Carrick seems to be still in charge of the team in the match against Arsenal in the middle of this week. Paul Scholes hopes Carrick can make a difference in his squad in the match later.
In the match against Chelsea, United drew 1-1. Carrick chose a conservative tactic by placing three midfielders: Nemanja Matic, Fred and Scott McTominay. Bruno Fernandes was plotted as a false nine because Ronaldo was left on the bench in that match.
“I think Cristiano will play (against Arsenal), and I think the two wingers that were plotted in the Chelsea game will be used again later,” said Scholes as quoted by the Mirror.
“Carrick should maybe use two midfielders, rather than three, so Fernandes is placed there as a duet with Matic or Fred,” continued the man who was once a Red Devils midfield general.
“Arsenal do not have the same level of quality as Chelsea, they are not at all comparable to Liverpool, nor to Manchester City,” he concluded.
