9. Antonio Valencia
The Ecuadorian was a model of consistent under Sir Alex Ferguson but, despite David Moyes’ fondness for crosses into the box, Valencia has been bang average this term. The 28-year-old has picked up more bookings in the league than combined goals and assists. His versatility (he can operate at right back) and the inconsistency of the club’s other wingers may prove Valencia’s saving grace, but he doesn’t look good enough.
8. Wilfried Zaha
Fergie signed the promising Englishman as a replacement for Nani but Moyes promptly handed the Portuguese a new contract and sidelined Zaha, much to the winger’s frustration. At 21-year-old, there is still plenty of time for Zaha to improve but Moyes clearly doesn’t rate him and the former Crystal Palace star has done little in his four appearances on loan at Cardiff to suggest the Scot has made a costly misjudgement. Indeed, Zaha was dropped to the bench by Bluebirds boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for the defeat at Tottenham and he mays struggle to win back his place before the end of the campaign.
