Manchester United is currently 2nd in the Premier League and can win this year’s UEFA Europa League and end their trophyless run. United have scored more than 100 goals this season and it shows their high attacking display on the pitch. The Red Devils scored 9 goals against Southampton and 6 against Leeds United. United had defensive issues this season, which led them to slip from the top spot in the Premier League. Here are the top five players for Manchester United this season.
#1. Harry Maguire
The Manchester United captain has been pretty solid at the back and Maguire has equaled the club record of most consecutive Premier League games played which was set up by Gary Pallister. The English center back had a shaky start to the season but was back to his best as the season proceeded. Maguire has scored few times this season and has been great with his ball playing.
#2. Luke Shaw
Luke Shaw is arguably the best left-back in the league this season and one of the best in the world. Shaw’s improvement has been immense this season and new signing Alex Telles has not been able to get much first-team action. Shaw has created the most chances in the league in 2021 and has been solid defensively this season. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has brought the best out of the English man.
#3. Edinson Cavani
Edinson Cavani has been the best signing for Manchester United this season. The El Matador is United’s first number 7 to reach double figures in goals since Cristiano Ronaldo. Cavani is the number 9 which the devils lacked for a long and the former PSG man has been firing in front of a goal this season and also got an immense work rate.
#4. Marcus Rashford
Marcus Rashford is arguably the best attacker for United this season. The 23-year-old is having his best season in terms of goal contributions. Rashford is one of the best wingers this season and certainly a contender for the PFA Young Player of the Year award. Rashford has scored 6 goals in the UEFA Champions League but it was very unlucky that United was eliminated in the group stage.
#5. Bruno Fernandes
Bruno Fernandes has been the best player for Manchester United this season and the team’s performances improved since his arrival last year. The Portuguese Magnifico has scored 26 goals this season and is currently United’s top scorer.
