It has been another strange season for Manchester United supporters.
As a group of fans, there are many who have only ever experienced their side being the best team in the country.
Yet during Louis van Gaal’s debut season in English football, United have been inconsistent to say the least.
Six consecutive league victories – including memorable wins over Tottenham, Liverpool and Manchester City – had United fans claiming their side was back and set to challenge for the title once again next season.
Yet the last three matches have produced three consecutive defeats without a goal scored, and provided further evidence there is still plenty of work to be done for van Gaal and his side.
Here we have identified an XI that supporters would be delighted to see lining up on the opening day of next season.
