United's Midfield- Everyone Else's Kryptonite

In the upcoming Premier League season, I believe that Louis Van Gaal will be placing a lot of responsibility onto the shoulders of the players who will be playing in the middle of the park for our team.

A foundational role will be played by the midfield players in the new 3-5-2 formation that we’re set to adopt.

The money we spent on Ander Herrera is evidence of this. Herrera and his link up play with our other midfielders like Juan Mata and Darren Fletcher, as well as Wayne Rooney and Robin Van Persie up front will have lot of work to do throughout the season.

He will be charged with dictating the tempo of our game and  one would expect contributing several goals of his own, in addition to the ones he will create for our strikers.

Furthermore, the men surrounding Herrera, including our wing-backs (presumably Luke Shaw and perhaps Ashley Young) will play a key role in ensuring not only attacking quality, but also solidarity at the back.

I have high hopes for the midfield and hope our boys will step up and perform.
