HYS: An entire Man United XI of just one player…

We’re having an interesting debate here at Football FanCast towers – if you had to create an entire starting XI for a Premier League club from just one of their players, duplicated ten times, who would you choose and why?

Take Manchester United for instance. The opposition would rarely get the ball off eleven Juan Matas, but during the rare moments when they actually do, would the Spanish playmaker be able to hold off counter-attacks when he’s playing at centre-half?

Likewise, Romelu Lukaku offers a combination of height, power and goalscoring prowess, which would make him a better option than most at both ends of the pitch. But does he have the guile to link play from the back to the front?

Perhaps someone more versatile like Antonio Valencia would be a better choice, or Paul Pogba who boasts an impressive all-round game. But do they have enough magic to consistently get the ball into the back of the net?

It’s proving a head-scratcher for the writers at FFC – so we’re hoping Man United fans can help. Let us know who you’d feel most comfortable making a whole Red Devils XI from by voting below…
