Manchester United were hammered by Liverpool last night, despite only getting beat 2-0. After the game both Paul Scholes and Rio Ferdinand were damning towards the poor performances of the players and Louis van Gaal, and rightly so too.
Paul Scholes in particular looked absolutely distraught with the result and display of the team, and was absolutely spot on with everything he said. However he still had time to take a swipe at Arsenal as well as Manchester United.
“The last thing I want is for Man Utd to be happy with winning the FA Cup and finishing 4th. That’s what Arsenal do every year.” Scholes began.
“When Arsenal finish 4th, you see them celebrating out on the pitch, we can’t have that at Man Utd”
At this point in time it feels as though all Manchester United now have to play for is the FA Cup. The game against West Ham at the weekend is hugely important but it won’t be at all easy, its now up to Louis van Gaal to motivate his players sufficiently to go out and leave everything on the field come Sunday.
