Paul Scholes Makes Man United vs Liverpool Prediction After Red Devils' Comeback Win Over Atalanta
- After getting the job done against Atalanta, Man United will be shifting their focus to their upcoming meeting against Liverpool.
- United ended their woeful run of results against the Italian side after they staged a second-half fightback to win 3-2
- But after seeing his former side concede twice in the first-half against Atalanta, Scholes does not see his former side overcoming the Reds
- Liverpool have been impressive since the start of the season and remain the only unbeaten team in the Premier League so far
Paul Scholes has given Man United no chance of overcoming Liverpool ahead of the two EPL heavyweights' meeting on Sunday, October 24.
United are scheduled to host Jurgen Klopp's charges at Old Trafford in what promises to be a cracking match.
The encounter will come after the Red Devils' thrilling comeback win over Atalanta in the Champions League.
The Manchester club found themselves trailing Atalanta by two goals at halftime when they locked horns in their Group F European fixture.
However, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men staged an epic fightback in the second half to complete one of the most thrilling turnarounds in football.
Marcus Rashford set his side on course for the comeback, pulling one back for the Red Devils shortly after the break.
Harry Maguire levelled matters in the 75th minute before Cristiano Ronaldo planted home a trademark header to inspire United to victory.
Despite their clear show of resilience, Scholes reckons they will not overcome Liverpool - at least going by their performance against Atalanta, especially in the first half.
“I don’t want to sound like a party pooper because it is a great night for the fans, Ronaldo is the hero again, winning us the game. But that first half is a major worry for me," talkSPORT quoted Scholes saying.
“It looked anything but a team. It just lacked unity.
“Can they go and play against Liverpool like that? Never in a million years," he added.
United will be bidding to build on their newfound momentum to secure a favourable result against Liverpool to get their campaign back on track again after dropping out of the top four.
Ole praises Man United stars
Earlier, YEN.com.gh reported how Solksjaer claimed he was confident Man United would overturn Atalanta's 2-0 lead to win at Old Trafford on Wednesday, October 20.
Solskjaer, who has come under immense pressure in recent days went on to praise his players for turning up when it mattered most.
"But they never stopped believing, they kept on going, made a few mistakes, but they kept going," the Norwegian noted.
He, however, hit out at clear mistakes in the first half that saw them go two goals down, insisting they cannot afford to keep making them.
