In terms of the defence, Scholes revealed he feels Tyrell Malacia reminds him a little of Patrice Evra, who also took a short while to settle into life in the Premier League, and admitted this could be an ideal encounter for Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s long-established qualities.

“I think Malacia has looked much better,” said the legendary playmaker. “He’s very aggressive and almost in a similar vein to Patrice as it took him a little time to get going. He’s been great at left-back but is going to have to be on his mettle tonight. Obviously, concentration is a big thing.

“At right-back, I suppose it could be a game for Wan-Bissaka. For me, I’d want a proper defender and there is no doubt he is a fantastic defender, I think.”

As for the central defenders, Paul predicted: “I think Raphael Varane will play with Luke Shaw. It’s been a partnership we’ve seen before and Luke has been fantastic. I saw it as him just filling in for a couple of games but think the manager really likes him there, with his pace and composure.”
