Paul Scholes names Manchester United’s best player vs Chelsea and it’s not Scott McTominay

The 19-year-old was involved in much of the attacking play, grabbing an assist for match hero Scott McTominays second goal of the night. Garnacho himself mustered eight shots during the match, albeit only one was on target.

Nevertheless, he got himself into some good positions, and perhaps felt he should have done better with a number of chances, but was a handful for the Chelsea defence all night. I thought Garnacho was excellent, Scholes told Premier League Productions.

I thought he was probably the best player on the pitch. I know Scott scored two goals and got player of the match but I thought Garnacho was excellent and he went up another level tonight.

Garnacho has now started the last eight matches for United and is considered a starting XI regular just 15 months after making his full senior debut. He has tallied three goals for the season in all, with his assist for McTominay his first of the campaign.

His recent uptick in form comes off the back of being left out of last months Argentina squad, when boss Lionel Scaloni said omitted Garnacho out due to his form. The teenager will be eyeing a place in the countrys Copa America squad for next summer in what would be his first – and Lionel Messis final – major international tournament.
