Manchester United legend, Paul Scholes has expressed worries over the club’s defence going into their Saturday encounter with Manchester City.

Scholes is concerned that captain Harry Maguire is not yet back to his best after a long term injury and is also worried by Raphael Varane’s latest injury.

Manchester United came from behind twice to secure a point against Atalanta in the Champions League on Tuesday night as Cristiano Ronaldo bagged both goals.

Maguire was criticised for the second goal after playing Davide Zapata onside and then reacted slowly to get back and block the forward’s shot.

Manchester United’s night was made even worse when Varane injured his hamstring putting him in serious doubt for the Premier League clash with Manchester City on Saturday.

“They played alright on Saturday but tonight it was a little bit messy,” Scholes said on BT Sport.

“As soon as Varane went off, they seemed to go all over the place, really shaky.

“The quality in the middle of the pitch wasn’t great, giving the ball away.

“Maguire, I don’t know if he’s still injured or got a hangover from the Euros, just doesn’t look right and he’s not with it at the moment.

“I don’t want to say it again, but with a performance like that second half especially no Varane on Saturday it has to be a slight worry.

“If you’re Pep [Guardiola] you would think you have a good chance to win. City think that anyway, at any point it will be a difficult game.

“But with no Varane it is going to be more difficult – saying that, they have the quality to score goals.

“Even in the Liverpool game, they produced three clear chances. United need to defend properly and concentration is key.”
