Manchester United stars set incredible season record


Manchester United stars Chris Smalling and Daley Blind made 55 starts in 2015/16, the most by any United player since Gary Pallister (58) since in 1994/95.

Daley Blind making 55 starts as a Center Back speaks volumes about the United squad. Rojo and Jones especially should be worried that Blind who is not a natural center back has been preferred over them over the course of the season. On the flipside, this has been a season where Chris Smalling has established his credentials as a top defender in Europe. A good Euro with England will give Smalling a massive confidence boost going into the new season. Although still prone to the occasional mistake, Smalling would love to play under Jose Mourinho who is known to bring out the best from his defenders and defensive midfielders.

Daley Blind would struggle to make the same number of appearances next season as Mourinho would want his centerbacks to be physically strong with good aerial presence.
