Shaw brief highlight at troubled Old Trafford...
IT has not been a vintage start to the season for United as a poor run of form has been accompanied by a string of worrying off-field incidents.
However, among the turmoil at the club there has still been brief moments of joy in a so-far lifeless season. Last weekend’s win against Newcastle brought vintage memories back to the club, while Luke Shaw’s impressive form has given supporters reason to cheer.
But who have been the winners and the losers from the season so far? at Brighton and West Ham, the loyal Red Army remained vocal throughout, showing their support to the club with choruses of ‘Mourinho’s army.’
It has been a testing start to the new campaign but the fans have yet again shown why they are the most important part of the football club.
ANTHONY MARTIAL REWIND to pre-season and it seemed like Martial’s United career was coming to an end. However, two months into the new season and the Frenchman has repaid supporters’ faith in him.
The charismatic 22-year-old has done his talking on the pitch and capped a fine run of form with a ferocious equaliser against Newcastle on the weekend.
Martial still has plenty of hard work left to do at Old Trafford, but he has already demonstrated he has the character to make it at the club. support who feel he did not perform well enough in the summer transfer market. United have known for nearly a year they needed a new central defensive signing and it was worrying Mourinho wasn’t backed to buy one before deadline day.
Fred has been a solid signing but it is shocking to think United spent £70m on three recruits who haven’t established themselves within the first-team.
PAUL POGBA DESPITE some impressive displays there has yet again been too much drama surrounding the World Cup winner.
It seems like a broken-record suggesting he needs consistency to become a club great, and his notorious mixed-zone appearances haven’t done him any favours at the club either.
The 25-year-old has the power to transform United’s fortunes, but we are still yet to see the best from him two years after his then-world record move.
Luke Shaw’s form has been a rare highlight at Old Trafford this season
