In defense, most MU fans chose Victor Lindelof (6.4 points) to pair with Axel Tuanzebe (6.0). Maguire is just a project with a score of 5.7. Rookie Alex Telles has not played much, so he is also underestimated compared to Luke Shaw who is in good shape. On the opposite flank, Aaron Wan-Bissaka is the undisputed choice despite his limited attacking ability.

In the wooden frame, David de Gea (7.0) is still appreciated by many fans than Dean Henderson (6.0) has not had many chances to play this season.

MU fans rate Pogba very low at the moment

On the attacker, rookie Edinson Cavani (5.8), even though he only played 93 minutes, was still more appreciated than Mason Greenwood (5.7) and Anthony Martial (5.6). Finally, Marcus Rashford (7.3) was selected in good form in the past, scoring 8 goals in 12 matches.

(4-4-2): De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Tuanzebe, Shaw; Van de Beek, McTominay, Fred, Fernandes; Rashford, Cavani.
