Scholes hopes Man United can take advantage of unhappy Chelsea

first_imgPaul Scholes hopes to see Manchester United inflict further misery on Chelsea in Monday’s FA Cup clash.The Red Devils suffered their first defeat under interim coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on Tuesday at Old Trafford to Paris Saint-Germain in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie.Presnel Kimpembe and Kylian Mbappe’s second-half goals have left United at a big disadvantage for the return leg at Paris on March 6.For now, however, the Red Devils’ focus will be on this Monday at Stamford Bridge in a fifth-round tie with Chelsea in the FA Cup.After suffering his first setback as United coach, Solskjaer will be looking for a response from his players as he chases a third FA Cup title and his first as a manager.But Chelsea are also looking to bounce back from their own struggles following heavy defeats to Manchester City and Bournemouth across their last four matches.Therefore, Scholes is wary of the Blues threat heading into Monday night’s encounter.“Ole will want to win something as manager of United,” Scholes told the Daily Mail.“The FA Cup, after the result against PSG, could be the only thing they could win.Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedLiverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.“Chelsea look in trouble at the minute. Will they bounce back themselves? Ole will have to deal with that.“They’ll be disappointed. Chelsea will be looking for a big recovery. From what you read it doesn’t look like a happy camp at the minute so hopefully United can take advantage of that.”The former midfielder also added that he has no “issues” over United making Solskjaer the permanent manager at the end of the season.Scholes added: “I’d have no issues whatsoever [with Solskjaer getting the job].“I know people will start to question because now because he’s lost a game but that was PSG.“That could happen to the most experienced manager in the world because PSG are a top team.“I think for what he’s done so far he definitely deserves a chance.“I always knew there was talent in that squad. I think everyone did. Ole has come in with a smile on his face, put his arm around the players – there so much talent in that team. He’s given them freedom and you’ve seen the results.”The Chelsea and United FA Cup match will begin at 8:30 PM (CET).last_img read more
