4-2-3-1: Manchester United’s strongest XI – including Martial & De Gea

Manchester United’s squad has been transformed over the transfer window, with plenty of high-quality players coming in alongside Louis van Gaal clearing the deadwood whom he deems surplus to requirements or simply not good enough.

With the addition of Anthony Martial, the Iron Tulip now has more options available to him, allowing him to drop Wayne Rooney back into the #10 role with the speedy Martial coming in as a striker. The 19-year old Frenchman could be a real asset to Manchester United. We’ve seen how pace and power can be utilised, just look at Sergio Aguero.

We’ve also managed to keep hold of David de Gea somehow, and it’d be foolish not to use his talents for the remainder of the season as it’ll probably be the last we see of him.

The rest of the starting XI should be as is as the players involved haven’t really done an awful lot wrong – particularly the back line who have looked solid.
