Scholes believes Fernandes has been "disappointing" during big games after he failed to deliver in Saturday's goalless draw against Arsenal.
The Portuguese star was unable to influence the game as The Red Devils dropped league points for the second game running following their shock defeat to Sheffield United.
He has 11 goals and seven assists to his name this season, but has only scored a penalty against Tottenham in the crunch league matches.
And the United legend has questioned whether his former team will go onto win the Premier League title.
Speaking to Premier League Productions, he said: "They (United) can't seem to win those games [against the other teams at the top].
"When you're struggling against Sheffield United the other night, you're beaten by them and then you come to a big game, they just can't win them.
"They just can't find a way of doing it. Bruno Fernandes has been disappointing in every single one of them. He's had great numbers, great assists, great goals."
On Fernandes' big game form, Scholes added: "In the last five games against big teams, he's had no goals, no assists.
"It's really worrying and that's why United are where they're at. They're in a good position tonight but it's not a position where you think 'this team will go on to win the league.'
"They've come to Arsenal, who aren't a great team, and they haven't won the big game. There is no desperation to win it either. I don't see them throwing bodies forward.
"Arsenal weren't a threat going forward, no Saka, no Aubameyang. United don't do enough to win these big games, they don't throw enough bodies forward and they don't have a desperation to win them and to go on to win the league."
At the time of writing, United remain in second place with 41 points on the board, three points behind league leaders Manchester City.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side will look to get back to winning ways on Tuesday when they host Southampton.
