Paul Scholes has revealed his doubts over whether Manchester United’s “confusing” strike-force is capable of taking the club back to the top.

Juan Mata’s goal against Chelsea on Sunday was United’s first goal from open play in 541 minutes amid a slump in form from Romelu Lukaku, Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford.

Former midfielder Scholes has been left bemused by the Red Devils’ forwards.

He told Premier League Productions: “I always think at United and at big clubs, you’re only as good as your centre-forwards are and your attacking players.

“I’m not sure whether these attacking players are good enough.

“We talk about potential with Martial, Rashford, but you’re getting to a point now where it’s not potential, you have to start producing week in, week out.

“Lukaku, I’m not sure if he’s a top-class centre-forward that’s going to score you 30 goals to win you a league. There’s confusion with the forwards.

“When I played we had four centre-forwards, who were brilliant, and they were centre-forwards.

“You look now and you’ve got Lukaku, who’s definitely a centre-forward, but then you’ve got Martial, Rashford, Alexis Sanchez.

“Are they centre-forwards? Are they wide players? There’s confusion all over the pitch. A lack of identity.”

Scholes also spoke of confusion in midfield and around Paul Pogba…
