Paul Scholes gives his honest opinion on Man Utd's attack after 3-1 West Ham loss

West Ham United v Manchester United - Premier League

It was another day to forget for Manchester United and Jose Mourinho.

After losing at home to Derby in the Carabao Cup, the Red Devils suffered their third Premier League defeat of the season away at West Ham.

The Hammers took the lead at the Olympic Stadium through Felipe Anderson and Andriy Yarmolenko's deflected effort doubled their advantage on the stroke of half-time.

Substitute Marcus Rashford pulled one back with a sensational flick before Marko Arnautovic put the game to bed with a cool finish past David De Gea.

West Ham were far and away the better side on Saturday lunchtime, securing their biggest win over Man United for 36 years.

The Reds could find themselves 11 points behind the league leaders later on Saturday.

Mourinho's job is surely under threat.

Paul Scholes speaks

Manchester United legend Paul Scholes shared his thoughts in the BT Sport studio straight after the 3-1 defeat at West Ham.

Mourinho finished the game with Romelu Lukaku, Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford on the pitch - but Scholes thinks United would've been better off with West Ham's front three.


"If Man United had West Ham's front three today it could've been a different story," said the retired midfielder.

"The lack of movement from Lukaku and Martial.

"We know Martial's got ability - and we know Rashford's got ability - but they're not showing it anywhere near enough."

Scholes is not wrong - United have only managed 10 goals in the first seven Premier League games.

Are Arnautovic, Yarmolenko and Anderson better than Lukaku, Martial and Rashford? Based on recent performances, yes they are.

Mourinho dropped Alexis Sanchez from the squad after a string of disappointing performances on the left of Man United's attack.

But Lukaku has now failed to score in his last four outings and Martial is yet to score a Premier League goal this season.
