Back-to-back Premier League wins have boosted Manchester United up to fourth place in the table following a wretched start to life under Louis van Gaal.
A top four finish is deemed the minimum requirement for the 20-time champions this season with the club having spent more than £150 million on new signings in the summer.
Angel Di Maria has made a stunning impact already whilst Radamel Falcao fired his first Premier League goal in the recent 2-1 win over Everton.
Daley Blind and Ander Herrera look to have bolstered the midfield which proved such a problem last season, however the defence still looks vulnerable to say the least.
We can expect van Gaal to try and rectify this situation in the January transfer window but with the club having spent such big money during the summer, it may well be a case of selling before buying.
One player expected to make way in January is Juan Mata, despite having only signed in a £35 million deal from Chelsea at the beginning of the year.
The new signings at Old Trafford have pushed him down the pecking order and his sell-on value means he is a likely candidate to leave this winter.
Here, we have identified five more players to follow the Spaniard out of the club this January.
