David De Gea, Phil Jones and Ashley Young were the players Manchester United brought in last summer.
They all had their good and bad moments during the season but will be expected to be more consistent, and good, this season.
That is especially the case for David De Gea who came in highly regarded and with big boots to fill. He lost his starting spot at times to Anders Lindergaard but made up for it with some brilliant saves during various games.
One thing Manchester United has had in all its title-winning campaigns in recent memory is a great, consistent goalkeeper. David De Gea needs to fit the bill.
Phil Jones's versatility, and the various injuries in the squad, saw him play in a variety of positions throughout the season. He did well for the most part and may be expected to repeat that versatility while providing more consistency.
Ashley Young chipped in with eight goals and seven assists for the club while competing against Antonio Valencia and Nani for a starting role. Fans and staff at the club alike will be hoping for more next season.
