How Moyes should be lining up United from their current squad.
Following a 0-1 home defeat at the hands of former team Everton, new Manchester United manager David Moyes is finding life at Old Trafford quite tricky.
The squad has barely changed from the side that lifted the Premier League title in 2012/13 and yet Moyes can’t seem to find the best starting XI for the Red Devils as yet.
As such fanatix has picked out how the Scot should be utilising the United talent on offer.
Goalkeeper and defence
After a tricky first year in Manchester, ‘keeper David De Gea now looks like a fine talent and worth the £18m United paid for the Spaniard in 2011.
At the back captain Nemanja Vidic is still one of the best defenders in the division and is a certain starter when fit, but usual partner Rio Ferdinand looks off the pace now.
The veteran is 35-years-old and has been exposed too often in recent times to be a real asset, whereas Jonny Evans finally seems to have come of age.
Despite being considered a utility man talented youngster Phil Jones is best deployed at right-back, with Patrice Evra on the other flank enjoying a mini revival to the full-back’s career of late.
The temptation was to play Jones in central midfield alongside the always reliable Michael Carrick, due to Darren Fletcher’s long term injury problems, Ryan Giggs’ advancing years and Tom Cleverley’s seeming inability to pass forward.
Yet although Marouane Fellaini has received some flack since making the £27.5m move on transfer deadline day, it simply takes time for the Belgian to revert back to a more defensive player.
Both Ashey Young and Nani look like their time at the Theatre of Dreams has come to an end, especially with Antonio Valencia being such an established first team star.
Moyes has also started to finally play Shinji Kagawa on a regular basis and the Japan international has the potential to be a real creative influence.
This pretty much picks itself, as the striking duo of Wayne Rooney and Robin Van Persie is the envy of much of the world’s best sides.
The pair are proven goal-scorers at this level and Rooney’s ability to drop deeper perfectly compliments the Dutchman.
