Manchester United were certainly busy in the transfer window, with no less than seven new signings arriving at Old Trafford.
Anthony Martial, Regan Poole, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Morgan Schneiderlin, Sergio Romero, Memphis Depay, and Matteo Darmian were all signed by the Red Devils during the summer. However, not all of them are likely to make it in to the starting XI, with several in form players likely to keep them out.

Manchester United transfer news
Manchester United star tipped to return after Real Madrid saga
This summer’s GAMBLE signings: Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester United and City newcomers among riskiest transfers
GK) David De Gea
With the transfer window over, van Gaal will be free to put his number one back in to the side without the interest of Real Madrid distracting him.
RB) Matteo Darmian
The Italy international has looked assured in his performances so far. He not only looks like Gary Neville, but could end up emulating his success at Old Trafford.
LB) Luke Shaw
While the 20-year-old hasn’t hit the heights that some expected of him with United, he still has plenty of time to justify his huge transfer fee.
CB) Chris Smalling
Possibly the biggest winner out of their failed attempts to sign Sergio Ramos, the England international looks set to stay in the middle of the defence.
CB) Daley Blind
It is yet to be seen if the Dutchman’s lack of height will trouble him against Christian Benteke, but for now he should keep his place.
