Things look as if they are starting to come together for Manchester United and Louis van Gaal at last as the Red Devils recorded a fifth consecutive victory with a 2-1 win at Southampton on Monday night.
van Gaal was hardly pleased with the quality of United’s performance on the south coast but as is so often said, it is the mark of a top side to pick up three points without playing well.
United now go into Sunday’s game at home to Liverpool knowing a win will take them a massive 10 points clear of their bitterest rivals.
This is of course all ahead of the January transfer window where all the reports suggest the club is set to strengthen even further.
Despite splashing almost £150 million on new talent in the summer, money is said to be no object for the club in their pursuit to piece together a title winning squad – and a host of world class players have already been linked with a January switch to Old Trafford.
Here we have gone through the rumourscand identified what we would consider to be a dream starting XI for Manchester United post deadline day.
