Man United’s 2017-18 squad

How did Manchester United get on in the summer transfer market?

Many joked that Jose Mourinho must have spent transfer deadline day completely relaxed, smoking cigars and laughing at his Premier League rivals.

As the likes of Arsenal were being rejected by Thomas Lemar and Chelsea were rebuffed by Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Fernando Llorente, Man United got their summer business done early.

Mourinho made four signings during the summer window. Victor Lindelof joined from Benfica, Romelu Lukaku signed on from Everton, Nemanja Matic left Chelsea while Zlatan Ibrahimovic signed on for another season.

So how good is Man United’s depth chart?

A new graphic is doing the rounds showing Man United’s strength in depth this season.

The Special One has comprised a squad with at least two options in every position.

Often, the Red Devils have many more options than that as well, especially in midfield.

Will Man United go on to win the Premier League?

Stoke v Man United

It’s been a perfect start to the Premier League season at Old Trafford.

After three matches, Man United have a 100% winning record. Moreover, the Red Devils are yet to concede a goal in the EPL.

Will that change this weekend at Stoke? The Potters have already beaten Arsenal at the Bet365 Stadium this season.

Jose Mourinho has no new injury concerns ahead of United’s trip to the Midlands.

However, he will still be without long-term absentees Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Luke Shaw, Marcos Rojo and Ashley Young.

As for Stoke, Darren Fletcher is expected to return to face his former side after returning to full-training following a knee injury.

Mame Biram Diouf, Kurt Zouma and Maxim Choupo-Moting are all currently doubtful for the fixture.

The club are however confident that the trio will be fit in time to feature.

New £18 million signing Kevin Wimmer is set to make his debut for the Potters.
