Man Utd great Scholes calls for Fernandes axe


Manchester United legend Paul Scholes says Bruno Fernandes needs to be dropped for their clash with Everton.

Scholes expects summer signing Casemiro to play in midfield. However, the former England man believes the ex-Real Madrid star will need Scott McTominay and Fred alongside him - and that would leave no room for Fernandes.

“I'll go with that front three [Martial, Rashford, Ronaldo], at the minute I think they'll be most dangerous. Ronaldo… Sunday could be a game for him, Martial and Rashford pick themselves after their performance tonight (against Omonia)," Scholes told BT Sport.

“Again, I come back to the midfield area, that's the big question. If Casemiro plays, I think they need someone next to him, he played for Real Madrid for so many years, he played in a three all the time.

“He hasn't got the greatest of legs, but what he does bring is control, composure, relaxed nature, a captain-type, he will need Fred or McTominay with him. The interesting thing will be Eriksen and Bruno what he does with them, he brought Bruno off after an hour, he's been a little bit ineffective the last few weeks.

“Maybe it will be Casemiro, Fred, McTominay and possibly Eriksen it could be time for Bruno to have rest on Sunday."
