We are through with the drama of yet another eventful transfer window and have a much clearer picture of how this season’s Barclays Premier League may pan out for some of the league stalwarts. Manchester City, Chelsea, Liverpool and Tottenham have strengthened tremendously, but the same can’t be said about Manchester United and Arsenal. Yes, Arsenal has added a world class attacking player in Mesut Ozil, but that was not really a concern area from their standpoint. This Manchester United article comes from Aayush Dureha Manchester United, on the other hand, had been urged by television pundits and club admirers to add a player of Ozil’s mould, keeping in view the team’s performance against Chelsea and Liverpool. So how did United react to that? By buying a player who can bully everyone around him in the midfield and forcing the players to go for long balls. While majority of the critics have not been excited by the arrival of Marouane Fellaini, I believe that David Moyes has taken a massive step in retaining the domestic crown at Old Trafford. Hence, well done to David Moyes. Well done to Ed Woodward. Sure, one can question the timing of this deal and the notional financial loss as a result of not acting early in the transfer window, but I for one would refrain from commenting on transfer dealings’ news stories from secondary sources. Having Fellaini besides Michael Carrick in the central midfield provides sufficient cushion to the Man United back four and allows Carrick to move up and help their wingers and forwards to create clinical attacks. Combine Fellaini’s ability to win headers and De Gea’s ever reliable ball distribution skills, and you suddenly have an increased United presence in the opposition half. We won’t be surprised to see such transformation in their game-play starting from the upcoming Manchester derby. By pitting Fellaini against Yaya Toure, United finally have someone who can outmuscle the big man in the year’s most highly anticipated derby. The signing of Fellaini was neither meant to set the hearts of United fans racing nor to announce the club’s ambitions in the transfer markets. It’s just a minor plug in the hole that could possibly go a long way in helping Manchester United retain it’s superpower status in the Premier League. Manchester United may have finally found a Roy Keane! The post Manchester United: Finally some relief to the midfield appeared first on The Sports Bank.Net.
