David Moyes' best Everton teams didn't utilise wingers in the traditional sense.
Versatile players such as Steven Pienaar, Seamus Coleman and Leighton Baines interchanged with forwards such as Kevin Mirallas to ensure the team had width, but this was expansive and dependent on the situation.
The Scottish manager has always prioritised players who can carry out a number of roles; this is part of the reason his Everton teams were so difficult to break down. While Moyes is unlikely to eradicate wingers from Manchester United's play, he may aim to ensure their overall game becomes more well-rounded.
This could be excellent for Antonio Valencia and Nani, two players who need to evolve their attributes if they are to stay at Old Trafford. Both could be used in a number of different roles and can certainly help out in defensive situations. For Ashley Young, any change in United's style could render the most effective parts of his game useless.
When in form, Young's crossing is often pinpoint. He has struggled for consistency since moving to United and has never outlined himself as the club's most undroppable winger. His eagerness to get to the byline loses its impact when Patrice Evra storms up the flank and could continue to go down in value if Moyes decides to purchase Baines or Luke Shaw.
Although he can play just behind the striker, Young is the least adaptable winger from United's ranks. It will be extremely interesting to see where Moyes uses the man who once condemned his Everton side to a dramatic 3-2 defeat.
