Irwin Praises Midfielders

Irwin Praises Midfielders

The Red Devils cruised to a 3-1 victory against Villa, due to an impressive first-half display. Paul Scholes and Michael Carrick led the line and their influence was vital, according to Denis Irwin.

Carrick claimed his first United goal and set up Ronaldo for the third goal while Paul Scholes was just excellent once again.

'I thought the midfield were fantastic on Saturday,' Irwin said. 'Scholesy just pulled all the strings, played in his slippers, had a big pipe and Carrick linked up very well with him.

'They totally dominated the game. But I just thought our overall play and the way we linked up was all too easy and we should've won by more.'

'I think it's just human nature that you sit back a little bit when you get 3-0 up or 3-1 up and it just petered out in the end.

When you're 3-0 up at half-time and you know you've got big games to come, it's just automatic that you do sit back.'

Both played extremely well against Aston Villa. I don't think Park is up to the standard unfortunately though.

Criticising Park immediately after the Villa game seems a bit strange for me, he was absolutely brilliant. I wouldn't rule out that he will start against Arsenal though I'd prefer Giggs.
