Manchester United two key players so far this season

Manchester United have made an unbeaten start to the Premier League season, and topped that off last night beating FC Basel 3-0 in their first group stage Champions League match at Old Trafford.

Goals from substitute Mauroune Fellaini, Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford, gave the ‘Red Devils’ a comfortable victory against the Swiss Super League outfit. One downside of the evening was Paul Pogba going off with what looked to be a hamstring injury, but manager Jose Mourinho would have been delighted to see substitute Fellaini come on and score.

United head into this weekend’s game against Everton looking to maintain top spot in the Premier League, but Pogba’s injury will have given Mourinho a selection headache, does he give goalscorer Fellaini the nod in the midfield or does he turn to Ander Herrera or Michael Carrick.

With United’s terrific start to the season I take a look at who I believe are the Two most key players in the side right now.

David De Gea – Without question one of the best goalkeepers, if not the best goalkeeper in the world right now! Under the tenure of David Moyes and Louis Van Goal respectively, the Spanish shot stopper won United many points having to make world class saves time and time again.

This season, even though United didn’t concede in their first three games he has been a safe pair of hands when called upon, seeing him make a point blank save against Stoke on Saturday and also again last night shows even though he hasn’t had a lot to do he is reliable when called upon.

Romelu Lukaku – A summer signing from Jose Mourinho that was definitely needed. After Zlatan Ibrahimovic was the only potent force in front of goal last season it was important to get another goal scorer into the club and in Lukaku, United have got someone who is already proven in the Premier League after his time with Everton.

Grabbing his first Champions League goal last night and having grabbed 4 goals in the Premier League already this season, Lukaku has hit the ground running quickly and looks like he is going to be a key man this season for United.

Manchester United fans do you agree David De Gea and Romelu Lukaku are the two key players in the team right now? Let us know in the comments section…
