Scholes says Fellaini’s inclusion is to help sure up the Manchester United midfield because he expects the away side to dominate possession.

Asked if he was surprised by Fellaini’s selection, Scholes said on BT Sport: “A little bit yeah.

“It’s been a while but he was quite good when he came on on Saturday.

“He broke up play, Liverpool had wave after wave of attack and he did break play up.
