Manchester United were “shambolic” and had no plan during their 2-0 Europa League defeat at Liverpool, says former United midfielder Paul Scholes.

Daniel Sturridge and Roberto Firmino scored, with only keeper David de Gea preventing a heavier first-leg loss.

Scholes, who made 718 appearances for United, told BT Sport that the Old Trafford club “have certain standards and they have fallen well short”.

He added: “Liverpool had a way of playing. United didn’t have a clue.”

The second leg of the last-16 tie takes place at Old Trafford next Thursday (20:05 GMT).
