EPL: Scholes salutes two Man Utd stars after 3-2 win over Aston Villa

Manchester United legend Paul Scholes has singled out Marcus Rashford and Christian Eriksen for praise following the Red Devils’ Premier League 3-2 win over Aston Villa on Christmas Boxing Day.

Scholes said Rashford was at his best against Aston Villa, while Eriksen made the difference.

Recall that a brace from Alejandro Garnacho and a goal from Rasmus Hojlund gave Man United all three points against Unai Emery’s side at Old Trafford.

“Tonight they looked a real threat after the first 25 minutes,” Scholes told Premier League Productions.

“For the last hour, they looked like they could score goals.

“Marcus Rashford looked a little back to his best. There was a bit more life in him. Alejandro Garnacho got the two goals, Rasmus Hojlund got a goal.

“You have to remember a lot of these players are young lads and are going to be inconsistent. But now they have to really build on this.

“Christian Eriksen coming back into the team makes a big difference.”
