Paul Scholes names one player that inspired Manchester United’s 2-1 win over Bournemouth 

Manchester United legend, Paul Scholes, has singled out midfielder, Ander Herrera for praise after Jose Mourinho’s side secured a 2-1 win over Bournemouth in Saturday’s Premier League encounter.

Mourinho’s men trailed Callum Wilson’s well-merited opening goal but came back to win the game with goals from Anthony Martial, and Marcos Rashford.

Scohles said Herrera was responsible for changing the game for United in the Red Devil’s 2-1 comeback victory against their hosts.

“I think Herrera made a big difference to the team,” Scholes said after the game on BT Sport.

“He seemed to sure things up, steady the ship a little bit and that allowed Pogba to do what he’s good at.

“If Pogba’s in a midfield where he’s expected to be disciplined he doesn’t really like the responsibility of that. Fred, as well, I don’t think he does.

“So, Herrera coming on had a big change on the game.”

The win over Bournemouth means the Old Trafford club now occupies the seventh position on the Premier League log with 20 points for 11 games.
