Scholes was not impressed with United’s showing in attack, sympathetic towards Hojlund with United’s wide players showing a lack of creativity.

‘The big worry for me is the centre forward,’ Scholes told TNT Sport.

‘We can’t create a chance for him. I know he has scored five goals in the Champions League but he hasn’t got any in the league, he hasn’t got a chance tonight and I don’t think he had a chance on Saturday [against Bournemouth].

‘It is a big concern, where the goals are coming from. You expect creativity from your wide players, Antony and Garnacho but they are quite selfish players.

‘They aren’t players who are looking up, they are players thinking about scoring their own goals, scoring themselves.’

Erik ten Hag also sympathised with his young striker after his tough night up against Bayern’s defence.

‘He scored five goals in the Champions League,’ the United boss said in his post-match press conference.

‘He has that, and he has to take this because it’s a huge performance from him. It also has to do with our attacking in those games.

‘He has to build on this into the Premier League. That is very good but today he did not create many chances but he had faced a very good opponent.’
