Premier League

Manchester United 'Weakness' That Might Cost Them In Their Title Quest This Season

In another hard fought victory against Everton, Premier League giants Manchester United now finds themselves boasting four wins in five challenging games with them picking all the points from Liverpool, Arsenal, Leicester City as well as the Toffees with their only loss in a big game coming up against their noisy neighbors, Manchester City.

Hence, the Erik ten Hag's side are now in a better place to potentially win a trophy this season after five years of drought given their recent classic displays on the pitch added to the impressive individual performances.

Meanwhile, despite their adorable run, the Red Devils might find themselves between a hard rock considering the fact that only a number of the players are putting on fantastic displays week in week out.

Diogo Dalot, Lisandro Martinez, Christian Eriksen as well as Antony have so far established themselves as the only options in their positions with them putting in impressive performances that has forced the manager into deploying them in every game available.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Fred, Maguire, Anthony Elanga as well as Jadon Sancho have all been retired to the bench and should Dalot, Martinez, Eriksen or Antony sustain an injury then it could sound a game over for the Red Devils.

Eriksen, 30 is no doubt irreplaceable in the United midfield at the moment considering his fantastic displays. The Denmark international is currently the most successful player when it comes to tackles won, interceptions made, chances created as well as passes completed and him missing even a single match could be a huge blow for the 20 times Premier League winners, and this was hugely experienced against Everton after he was replaced by Scot Mctominay.

Meanwhile, Diogo Dalot is currently on a run of being the most exceptional full back in the English Premier League. The 21 year old has proved to be a real magician in each of his appearances this season.

As well as Eriksen and Dalot, Antony and Martinez are irreplaceable in their positions, something which might eventually cost the Red Devils in their quest for titles this season should any of the players pick up an injury.
