United play a completely different ballgame when Antonio Valencia is in the park.
His positioning ability in the right flank combined with his tricks and pace enable United to attack effectively from the right. His crossing and passing are pin-point, and his marauding runs are a spectacle to behold.
Antonio Valencia is also perhaps the best right winger in the Premier League currently.
He can also deputize at right-back when needed, especially given the host of injury problems that United have accumulated.
He has been a constant threat from the right flank.
The number of key passes he makes in a game are phenomenal. In 13 appearances in the Premier League, Valencia has provided an overwhelming nine assists and has also scored a couple of goals.
He also frees up the right-back, as he did in the game against Liverpool, where Jose Enrique was too busy concentrating on him that Rafael was allowed to make effective passes into the center.
