Yeah, Chelsea look dominant so far, they will be hard to beat. Everton was horrible on defense. They played the trap terribly.

Di Maria, Falcao, Blind, Shaw, Herrera -> United

Get in!

Give us a couple months and hopefully we will gel and start lighting it up

De Gea
Rafael, Rojo, Jones, Shaw
Valencia, Herrera, Di Maria
Mata
Rooney, Falcao

That's a dangerous side. Only concern is if Jones is up to the task defensewise.

Rojo is not a very good defender either IMO...

Team looks good mid-forward.

Don't think Van Gaal has a lot of time to organize the team. Playing catch up is hard in the European leagues

I don't see Rafael starting for us much this season. He's fallen out of favor with Van Gaal. I think we'll be seeing a lot of Valencia and Young in the wingback positions.

I think it'll be more like:

De Gea
Valencia, Rojo, Jones, Evans, Young
Di Maria, Blind, Mata
Rooney, Falcao

ManU have not really addressed the main problems with their squad in the recent transfer market window.

As has been mentioned already it's the defense that needs bolstering.

The didnt really address anything with those signings. All they are doing is hoping to score more than they concede.

I think that both Blind and Herrera will add some steel to our midfield. Centerback, yeah more is needed but hope Rojo is better than Indyking claims.

Rojo is just OK IMO, I'm not sure he will be up to the task. The 2 defensive men from Argentina, Rojo and Garay, have been highly criticized before and during the WC. In the WC, the defensive midfielders had to help them out in several occasions, especially Mascherano
