‘To me He was the best player on the pitch last night and not McTominay, I’m so happy Ten Hag is beginning to trust Him’: Paul Scholes names Man Utd star who was ‘best player on the pitch’ ahead of McTominay last night
Paul Scholes showered praise on Alejandro Garnacho, asserting that the young winger was the standout player during Manchester United’s crucial victory over Chelsea. Despite Scott McTominay’s impressive two-goal performance earning him the Man of the Match title, Scholes argued that Garnacho’s exceptional display down the left wing deserved recognition.
United, facing a challenging period, secured a much-needed 2-1 win against Mauricio Pochettino’s Chelsea. Scott McTominay, who has been a bright spot for the club recently, scored both goals. After a disappointing defeat to Newcastle United, manager Erik ten Hag made attacking changes, sidelining Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial in favor of Antony and Rasmus Hojlund. Garnacho retained his spot in the lineup and proved to be a torment for Chelsea.
Despite McTominay’s individual accolades, Scholes insisted that Garnacho had elevated his performance to another level against Chelsea. The young winger’s dynamic contribution on the field stood out, according to the former United midfielder.
Amid reports of discontent at the club, Manchester United secured a crucial win, setting the stage for upcoming games that could define their season. With matches against in-form Bournemouth, the final Champions League group game against Bayern Munich, and a showdown with Liverpool, the victory comes at a pivotal time.
Erik ten Hag, grateful for the support from fans, acknowledged their importance in both good and challenging times. Looking ahead, he emphasized the team’s commitment to giving their best and pleasing the supporters, highlighting the need for cooperation to achieve success.
