Manchester United's Squad Depth That Can Dominate The Premier League, UCL

Manchester United has one of the best squad since the Scottish manager Sir Alex Ferguson retired in 2013. All positions have capable quality players that can be selected in the starting lineup by the Norwegian.

Here are the club's strongest players in all positions for the 2021/22 season.


David De Gea will retain his position as the first-choice goalie. The Spanish goalkeeper has been fantastic since signing for the British giants on 29th June 2011. The club also has a perfect back option for De Gea in case he fails to perform. Dean Henderson will serve as the backup goalkeeper this season.

Center Backs

Raphael Varane and Harry Maguire will serve as the first-choice center backs under Ole Gunnar. Both players are good at defending set- pieces and a lot is expected from the two stars. Lindelof and Bailey will serve as the backup options. The two have displayed fantastic performance when called upon by the manager.

Wing backs

Luke Shaw and Arron Wan Bissaka are the first options for Ole. The two have been impressive and have often contributed more to the attack. In addition to that, they are also good at defending and cannot be passed by opponents easily. Diego Dalot and Alex Tells will be available for selections in case the above players are ruled out due to injury.

Defensive midfielders

Here the manager has a lot of options but he is likely going deploy Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay in the starting lineup. Donny Van De Beek and Fred will serve as the backup options.

Attacking Midfielders

Here Ole Gunnar has two world-class players who are capable of creating scoring chances from anywhere in the field. These two players are Bruno and Lingard. However, the Portuguese will start ahead of England International.


The club's youngest stars, Mason Greenwood and Jordan Sancho will operate on this wing. The two players can terrorize opponents using their dribbling skills and pace.


Martial and Marcus Rashford will operate on the left-wing. The latter is capable of dribbling past opponents and will be very useful for the club during counterattacks.


The Portuguese captain, Cristiano Ronald will lead the attack and will be supported by Edison Cavani. The two can form an unstoppable attacking force because they are good at scoring goals from all angles.
