Manchester United Team Analysis

Manchester United are one of the big clubs in the English Premier League, having won the EPL numerous times, and consequently Fantasy Football Managers look closely at every player within the Man United team to see who should be brought into their own fantasy team. Below is a review of how the Man United team has started the 2015/16 season.

In goal, Romero has been preferred to the normal number 1 de Gea who the manager van Gaal decided was not in the right frame of mind due to transfer interest from his home country Spain. Man United have started the season without conceding a goal so the manager’s decision has been justified.

In defence, the starting back 4 have been Darmian, Smalling, Blind & Shaw with Smalling impressing more so this season in the centre than last and his central defensive partner, Blind, dropping back from a defensive midfield position last season. Shaw has recovered from his injury problems last season and Darmian a new Italian acquisition has slotted in extremely well. Maybe you are also interested in casinos online? No goals conceded so far this season for this defense!

In midfield, van Gaal has mixed things up a bit with the defensive midfield mainly coming from recent summer signing, Schneiderlin, and ex-Spurs player, Carrick. In a more adventurous role are Mata (bought from Chelsea in January 2014), Januzaj (rejunivated this season) and Memphis Depay (a big money signing in the summer from PSV). Other midfielders that have been used are Schweinsteiger (another major signing over the summer who was not match fit at the start), Young (attacking winger), Herrera and Fellaini who’s been serving a domestic ban for a red card last season.

In attack, England forward Wayne Rooney has been deployed as an out and out striker, as indicated by van Gaal in pre-season leading to many fantasy football managers selecting Rooney, but despite his hat-trick against a below strength Brugges last night he has failed to hit the back of the net in his 3 EPL starts. Rooney has been supported by the attacking midfielders (particularly Memphis) and ‘little pea’, Hern├índez has been used as a substitute striker.
