Manchester United great Paul Scholes believes a commanding centre-back is needed to challenge for the league.
United have the most goals of any team in the Premier League so far this season.
They claimed a comfortable 3-1 victory over Newcastle United over the weekend. Nevertheless, Scholes believes they do not defend well enough to win the biggest trophies in the game.
“I think they’re missing a real, dominant centre-back,” Scholes told BT Sport.
“If you look back at history at the teams who win leagues, they have real leaders in their back four.
“I think Maguire possibly could be but I think they need someone with him who can be really dominant in that position, really commanding, can bully a centre forward, can demand from the rest of the squad around him, on and off the pitch as well.
