Former Man united Midfielder Paul Scholes was confused by Thomas Tuchel’s opinion that the 0-0 draw between Chelsea and Manchester United was a “high quality” game.
The Blues failed to get the victory that would have seen them jump West Ham into the top four, but they extended their unbeaten streak to nine games with new boss Tuchel.
it was a drab gamee with very few scoring opportunities,but the Chelsea manager claimed there was a lot of “quality” during the draw that saw Man Utd extend their record streak without a Premier League defeat en route to 20 games.
Tuchel told Sky Sports: “It was a high quality game between two very strong teams. We suffered in the first half but overall it was an even game. In the second half I thought we were really strong.
“I thought we were closer to winning it, but there was a lot of quality on the pitch. Performance-wise I’m satisfied. We defended very well in the last line and I’m very happy with that.”
However, Paul Scholes disagreed with Tuchel and the Man Utd legend assumed the German manager was “watching a different game” than he was on Sunday.
Scholes told Premier League Productions: “I actually think Tuchel was watching a different game on his iPad when he said it was a game full of high quality.
“I didn’t see one bit of quality throughout the game. The number of times players got in good positions but failed with easy passes. Scott McTominay, Bruno Fernandes.
“There was quality on the pitch, don’t get me wrong, but did any of them show it? I don’t think they did.”
