Former Manchester United midfield maestro, Paul Scholes, has blamed defender, Victor Lindelof for Southampton’s second goal following the Red Devils’ 2-2 draw with the Saints in the Premier League on Monday night.
Man United had the chance to move into third with a win against Southampton, but Michael Obafemi scored in the 96th minute to ensure Leicester City and Chelsea remain in the final two UEFA Champions League spots.
Marcus Rashford had cancelled out Stuart Armstrong’s early goal, before Anthony Martial put United 2-1 up.
But Scholes believes Lindelof’s shoddy defensive work cost Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side to lose two points against the visitors.
“Lindelof I think has to be stronger there.
“He has to be on the goal side. He allows himself to get a little bit bullied by the centre forward [Michael Obafemi] as he manages to get a foot in.
“I do not think Lindelof really reads the danger there as he should do as a centre half,” Scholes told Premier League Productions.
Man United’s next game is against Crystal Palace on Thursday.
