Mourinho said after that game that Lukaku would be absent for at least two matches but last night the United manager revealed that he had not suffered a concussion and had been desperate to play against Everton.
"He is just strolling through games", said Scholes who won 11 league titles at Old Trafford.
In response, Mourinho attacked Scholes' punditry saying the former United player has failed in his job as a pundit and only criticizes instead of properly analyzing situations.
"But he never got into the limelight there until he was about 24, and I think that will be the same with Lingard". For transparency, I said this time a year ago that Mauricio Pochettino would leave Tottenham for a Spanish giant. Jose Mourinho laid into Paul Scholes and branded him a failed pundit as Manchester United got back to winning ways.
Now working as a television commentator, Scholes was questioned about the role of Paul Pogba in Manchester United as well as Mourinho.

Mourinho also praised former England midfielder Scholes, who was one of United's key players when they dominated the Premier League under Alex Ferguson between 1992 and 2013. You know, it's not Paul's fault that he much more than Paul Scholes.
"I think the only thing Paul Scholes does is criticise". 'We had chances today, we played aggressive but in a positive way, creating chances.
With his pantomime arrogance, Mourinho then really hammed it up, by adding: "If one day Paul (Scholes) decides to be a manager, I wish he can be 25 per cent as successful as myself". "He gave so much to my club that I only can thank him for that because the prestige of this club is based on people like him". He has been stressing on the fact that the club has spent money on important players like Paul Pogba, Romelu Lukaku but nothing like the amount on a collective level like City.
"I think they [former United players working as pundits] would love to be here, in the club".
Fans voted Paul Pogba as the man of the match after the victory. So if he's 25%, he'll be quite happy.
"I believe you make the decisions but I also believe that some clubs or some managers have good friends in the right chairs and I don't have them".
