Every team requires players in the center that perform well week in and week out, the so called "engine room" of the team, from where opportunities are created and taken to the front.
United like any other team enjoy working the ball from the center across to the wings and back across to the opposition box, feeding the forwards.
Other teams prefer moving through the middle of the pitch, quick passing and servicing the strikers.
Nevertheless, United have withing the squad many midfielders who have great ability and talent to make the first team, but the is a handful of really quality players who have the experience to deliver when the expectation is so high.
In this brief slide-show we preview just three midfielders who find themselves required more than anything to perform consistently and deliver the results.
We have seen many young up and coming wingers who provide United with something different, the likes of Gabriel Obertan and Bebe are two names that we have seen last week. They different in many ways yet similar in that they learning the United-way.
With experience and time we hope to see them more often in the first team.
