Scholes questions Tuchel’s assessment of Chelsea’s disappointing draw against Manchester United

Manchester United legend Paul Scholes has questioned Chelsea Boss Thomas Tuchel’s game analysis after the German claimed his side’s draw against Manchester United was full of “high quality”.

The former United midfielder thinks the Blues boss must have been watching a different game after the disappointing draw between Chelsea and Manchester United at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

The stalemate leaves Chelsea fifth in the table and United 12 points adrift of leaders Manchester City in second.

Following the match, Tuchel told Sky Sports: “It was a high quality game between two very strong teams. We suffered in the first half but overall it was an even game. In the second half I thought we were really strong.

“I thought we were closer to winning it, but there was a lot of quality on the pitch. Performance-wise I’m satisfied. We defended very well in the last line and I’m very happy with that.”

Scholes, responding to Tuchel’s comments, said on Premier League productions: “I actually think Tuchel was watching a different game on his iPad when he said it was a game full of high quality.

“I didn’t see one bit of quality throughout the game. The number of times players got in good positions but failed with easy passes. Scott McTominay, Bruno Fernandes…

“There was quality on the pitch, don’t get me wrong, but did any of them show it? I don’t think they did.”
