Paul Scholes explains why he was so impressed with Manchester United's win over Leeds
Paul Scholes has made his name in punditry since his retirement as a hard man to please.
Former United bosses David Moyes and Jose Mourinho are among those to feel his criticism.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s United are looking strong right now and Scholes only has positive words for the 21/22 Red Devils after a blistering start to the season.
United beat Leeds 5-1 at Old Trafford on Saturday with Bruno Fernandes scoring a hat-trick.
In a post on social media, Scholes said he felt that United’s strength in depth is key to this team’s quality, pointing to the bench, with players like Jadon Sancho and Anthony Martial able to come on in the second half.
Scholes added that he did not feel the same way at the end of last season.
Just as high quality were the list of players not even on the bench for varying reasons, with Raphael Varane, Eric Bailly, Marcus Rashford and Edinson Cavani all not fit or eligible to play.
There will be injuries testing United’s depth as the season goes on, but right now Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team are in good shape.
United face Southampton up next away from home followed by a trip to Wolves before the early September international break.
