PAUL SCHOLES has stuck the boot into Manchester United’s attackers questioning if they are good enough to be at the club.
The 44-year-old United treble winner has watched on as his old club lag 27 points behind Manchester City.
The United faithful have seen their side score a paltry 33 Prem goals scored at home all season, while at the Etihad, Pep Guardiola’s side have bagged 56.
United have mustered just one goal in open play in their last seven games coinciding with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side’s alarming dip in form winning two out of their last ten games.
Alexis Sanchez has been a disaster since he joined from Arsenal while Romelu Lukaku, Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford have all struggled to impress this season.
Scholes told Premier League channel: “I think it’s a confusing club and a confusing squad of players at the minute.
“I always think at Man Utd and at big clubs, you’re only as good as your centre-forwards are and your attacking players.
“I’m not sure whether these attacking players are good enough.
“We talk about potential with Martial, Rashford, but you’re getting to a point now where it’s not potential, you have to start producing week in, week out.
“Lukaku, I’m not sure if he’s a top-class centre-forward that’s going to score you 30 goals to win you a league. There’s confusion with the forwards.
“We talk about potential with Martial, Rashford, but you’re getting to a point now where it’s not potential, you have to start producing week in, week out.”
Paul Scholes on man United strikers
“When I played we had four centre-forwards, who were brilliant, and they were centre-forwards.
“You look now and you’ve got Lukaku, who’s definitely a centre-forward, but then you’ve got Martial, Rashford, Sanchez. Are they centre-forwards? Are they wide players?
“There’s confusion all over the pitch. A lack of identity.
“If (Victor) Lindelof can get a tough and aggressive defender next to him, I think they’ll be okay.

“They definitely need a right-back. Ashley Young has done well, converted from a winger.
“He’s struggled in the last few weeks but mainly he’s been alright over the last few years.”
Sunday’s draw with Chelsea leaves United three points off the top four with two games to play.
