United had the lead in Berne, but were overrun losing 2-1 as Aaron Wan-Bissaka was sent off for the visitors.

Scholes believes that manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should have made substitutions at an earlier stage.

Scholes said: "It's not a complete disaster. Jesse (Lingard) will be disappointed. It all stems from the sending off. United were quite comfortable up to that point.

"They really couldn't get out of their half in the second half. I think they needed to bring a bit of pace on earlier, with Martial or Greenwood."

Scholes was also unimpressed with Wan-Bissaka's red. Wan-Bissaka caught his opponent's ankle and the BT Sport pundits agreed that, while there wasn't any real intent, there was no choice but for the 23-year-old to be dismissed.

Scholes said: "He causes himself his own problem with a really clumsy touch. I don't think he meant to do it but he had to go."
