The Red Devils slumped to a surprise 2-1 loss at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday as Garry Monk’s Swans completed a memorable double over the Red Devils.
That defeat meant that United dropped down into fourth place in the Premier League table as Louis van Gaal’s side suffered a blow to their hopes of qualifying for next season’s Champions League.
However, former United midfielder Scholes believes that there were plenty of positives for the Red Devils to take from their loss in South Wales and is backing them to bounce back at home to Sunderland this weekend.
Writing in his column for the Independent, Scholes said: “Having been critical of United in recent weeks, I thought that despite losing to Swansea they played better.
“They had 18 goal attempts, which used to be the norm but that count has been much lower recently.
“Playing Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie as a striking partnership has to be the way forward for them now.”
United are currently fourth in the table and 13 points behind Premier League leaders Chelsea and one behind third-placed Arsenal after 27 games.
