Snuggled in alongside the likes of Angel di Maria, Radamel Falcao and Wayne Rooney in Manchester United’s XI today is a certain Tyler Blackett. The Centre-back has been a regular for the Red Devils so far this season thanks, in part, to the injury issues facing Louis van Gaal.
He’s looked a little shaky at times, but this shouldn’t come as a surprise given his meteoric rise. Just five months ago the defender was plugging away in the bottom half of the Championship on loan at Birmingham, but now he’s in United’s back four alongside a World Cup finalist. How times change…

How can someone have an attack of Rooney-Falcao, and a defense of Evans-Blackett? The difference in class between the 2 duos is immense.
