Our resident Manchester United fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern are on cloud nine after watching their beloved Red Devils take down arch-rivals Liverpool by a 3-1 scoreline yesterday evening at Old Trafford.
In what was a fairytale debut for new £36 million signing Anthony Martial who struck the goal that ultimately dealed the win late on, everything went right for United in the second half after a largely dull first half for the neutral.
Now on 10 points and second in the table ahead of Arsenal, United are nicely positioned behind the pace setters Manchester City and considering Louis van Gaal’s side haven’t been largely convincing in all of their games, Red Devils fans will take their position right now.
Starting the game up top yesterday as a striker was Marouane Fellaini who despite being a versatile customer isn’t a solution Red Devils fans want to be relying on too much this season.
Struggling to make the most of his hold up play in the first half, United fans will be buoyed that Martial seemed to display no fear in his late cameo suggesting he perhaps is ready to spearhead United’s attack over the coming months.
Following yesterday’s triumph for United, Louis van Gaal has now managed to beat Brendan Rodgers on all three of the occasions the managers have met in the Premier League now and this calls for a few Sunday evening shots!
Capitalising on this buoyant mood, we’re asking United fans by the bar who they reckon is the club’s five most underrated players right now.
