Manchester United won 2-1 at Bournemouth in the Premier League on Saturday but our first half was poor.
Manchester United legend Paul Scholes is growing increasingly frustrated with how Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho sets up the team tactically at the start of matches.
Manchester United improved in the second half after Mourinho made a double substitution just before the hour-mark when Rashford and Ander Herrera were introduced in place of Juan Mata and Fred.
Scholes was encouraged with how Manchester United played after the double substitution but wants United starting on the front foot and not with a defensive mindset.
“The second half was a lot better. Rashford made a big difference and Herrera in midfield released (Paul) Pogba and he started running in the second half,” Scholes said.
“As soon as they come out in every game they set up defensively, they sit off, sit back, never getting to the ball early on, never getting to players.
“And they can’t defend. The back four have shown week in, week out that they are going to concede chances and the keeper usually saves them.
“The strength of this team has to be their attacking ability. They’ve got so many good players going forward that they have to come out and try to start game this way.
“It’s not until they go a goal down or two goals down at times that they start to play.”
Rashford scored United’s winner in the second minute of stoppage time, but Scholes believes he should have scored earlier in the game.
Scholes added: “Marcus has missed a chance which he should have scored.
“He finishes well but should have scored before that.”
