Scholes: Man Utd’s draw with Everton a big blow to title aspirations

Paul Scholes has said Manchester United drawing 3-3 at home to Everton is another ‘big blow’ to their hopes of securing the Premier League title.

He however believes that Paul Pogba being forced off with a thigh injury was a pivotal moment in the match.

Edinson Cavani and Bruno Fernandes found the net either side of Pogba’s substitution in the 39th minute, with the Red Devils dominating possession and chances and seemingly cruising at Old Trafford.

Abdoulaye Doucoure and James Rodriguez dragged the Toffees back into the game with a pair of quickfire goals before Scott McTominay restored United’s advantage and looked to have won it with a smart header in the 70th minute.

 It means United have won just one of their last four games in the Premier League – their record-equalling demolition job on Southampton – and their title credentials have come under intense scrutiny as a consequence. ‘That’s a big blow. If you’re talking about title hopes, it’s a big blow for them. Of course it is,’ Scholes told Premier League Productions.
