Manchester United got back to winning ways yesterday with a 2-1 win over West Ham United at Old Trafford.
Goals from Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie gave Louis van Gaal only his second win as Manchester United boss, although a straight red card to club captain Rooney in the second half and a controversial disallowed goal for the Hammers took a bit of gloss off the win.
But the three points will no doubt be considered the most important thing with the Red Devils having fallen to a dramatic 5-3 defeat at the hands of Leicester City last weekend.
van Gaal has brought himself time at Old Trafford, stating it will take at least three months to get his philosophy across to his new team, filled with expensive world class signings.
United were busier than most in the summer, getting rid of homegrown players the likes of Tom Cleverley and Danny Welbeck to make room for the likes for Angel Di Maria and Radamel Falcao.
And reports suggest January will be no different, with van Gaal set to take on the next step of his rebuilding phase.
With some shock departures last time out, we have come up with five players who could follow the likes of Tom Cleverley out of Old Trafford when the January transfer window opens.
