Paul Scholes and Rio Ferdinand debate the merits of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s wildly erratic team following their spectacular Champions League comeback against Atalanta perfectly encapsulates the contradictory sentiments at Manchester United right now.

Ferdinand was cheerful in the red area after witnessing United come back from two goals behind to win 3-2 ahead of Sunday’s clash with Liverpool at Old Trafford. ‘You have to grab on to the emotion of a result like that,’ he said. ‘I’m not getting carried away, but you have to enjoy that.’

Scholes, on the other hand, was less enthusiastic. ‘People say I’m miserable, but I was thinking about Liverpool when I watched the game,’ he told BT Sport.

‘I kept going back to that first half, and it would be disastrous if we play like that against Liverpool. ‘United will look at this game and think they are cured, but they’re not.’

Is United’s win just papering over the cracks after a fourth defeat in seven games at Leicester last Saturday, or is Solskjaer’s team actually on the right track?
