EPL: Ten Hag made “strange” substitution during 1-1 draw with Chelsea – Scholes

Former Manchester United midfielder, Paul Scholes, has questioned Erik ten Hag’s “strange” decision to replace Jadon Sancho with Fred during their 1-1 draw with Chelsea on Saturday.

United controlled much of the first half, although Marcus Rashford and Antony failed to take their chances.

Blues boss, Graham Potter, responded by making a tactical change in the 35th minute, replacing Marc Cucurella with Mateo Kovacic.

Potter’s decision helped stem the tide and allowed Chelsea gain a foothold in the game.

Ten Hag responded seven minutes after the break, by removing Sancho and bringing on Fred.

Scholes, however, feels that decision backfired and had a negative impact on Bruno Fernandes.

“The subs were a little bit strange today. I thought Fred coming on when he did for Sancho didn’t really help the game.

“I thought Fernandes lost a bit of control of the game he had to come out to the left-hand side and wasn’t in the game as much,” Scholes told Premier League Productions.
