Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes has criticised the performances of Fred and Scott McTominay during Sunday's Premier League clash with Arsenal.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored the only goal of the contest as the Gunners recorded a 1-0 victory at Old Trafford, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side failing to build on their recent positive results.
Fred and McTominay were the deepest of United's midfielders against Mikel Arteta's side, and Scholes has said that the pair did not offer enough in a key area of the field.
"It's as poor as I've seen Manchester United at Old Trafford to be honest with you," Scholes told Premier League Productions. "You have to give Arsenal credit, they were very good but on other hand you have to expect more from United and the two midfield players especially.
"I said at half time if you're going to get your best, most creative players who can score goals on the ball then the two in midfield have to have some kind of possession and some kind of control but the quality was missing from them two. They were playing as centre halves, not central midfield players."
United are next in Premier League action at Everton next weekend but will first continue their Champions League campaign away to Istanbul Basaksehir on Wednesday night.
