Our Manchester United supporters here in the Football Transfer Tavern are glad their team are finally back in home action tomorrow when Louis van Gaal’s Red Devils face West Ham United at Old Trafford.
Having claimed four points from two away fixtures against Watford and Leicester City previously, United are still firmly in the Premier League title race just two points off first-placed Manchester City at present.
Historically speaking, United typically enjoy home encounters against the Hammers with West Ham having picked up ZERO points from their last eight journeys to the Theatre of Dreams.
Louis van Gaal could do with three points as well with a growing number of Red Devils supporters not overly convinced in which the direction the club is going in, especially regarding their playing style that has been labelled as boring by fans and pundits alike so far this campaign.
Winning footbal games is not enough for Manchester United supporters who will demand that the likes of Anthony Martial and Wayne Rooney play a lot better than they have done in recent appearances.
In a Premier League season billed as poor in terms of quality this term, there’s no getting away from the fact that if United had a lethal finisher up top, they’d probably be sitting at number one right now.
With a few deficiencies still remaining in United’s overall squad, we’ve taken this moment to devise a five-man shortlist of January signings that could take the Red Devils to the next level in the New Year.
