“It’s going to be difficult from now on I think. But they’ve got to keep going, they’ve got to keep fighting, they’ve got to keep believing.”
Scholes added: “There was a lot of [positive] stuff in the game, of course there was, to get in the position they were in but they’ll be very disappointed.
“And again it’s at home, dropping big games at home. I think they’ll get to the end of the season and think ‘what if?’ because it’s so many stupid points they’ve dropped at home.
“They’ve lost four games at home, now these stupid points they’ve dropped, Sheffield United last week, Tottenham, Crystal Palace, losing to an Arsenal team who are nowhere near the team they were.
“It’s looking like it’s going to be a ‘what if?’ season for them.”
