Top 10 Most Influential Manchester United Players Ranked

Let’s take a quick look at Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's 10 most influential Manchester United players in the 2019/20 campaign ranked in ascending order, according to MEN Sport's.

  1. Paul Pogba

Many fans will argue the Frenchman should be much higher on this list and of course, on pure ability, he should be close to the top. But Manchester United haven't seen much of him this season, due to injury.

  1. Scott McTominay

The fellow academy graduate has turned himself into an integral player for United. Barring an injury or two, McTominay could be even higher on this list, as a player of the season contender.

  1. Luke Shaw

From a broken leg under Louis van Gaal to being chastised by Jose Mourinho, the former Southampton man is finally showcasing his ability again under Solskjaer. Shaw is enjoying his most solid spell of form at Old Trafford.

  1. David de Gea

Two years ago, De Gea would have been at the top of this list, without a doubt. The situation is a little different now, though De Gea remains an important and very senior player in the dressing room. He will soon have to compete with Dean Henderson for the No.1 jersey.

  1. Anthony Martial

No doubt the Frenchman's importance to United has grown since Solskjaer moved him into a more central position. Martial's already matched his best-ever goal tally for United this season and will surely keep scoring when football resumes.

  1. Bruno Fernandes

The former Sporting Lisbon was signed in the January transfer window and with just nine appearances to his name, already have such status at United. Solskjaer's side needed a creative spark to link midfield and attack. And the former Sporting Lisbon playmaker has performed that role to perfection.

  1. Fred

Fred's performances in the 2019/20 campaign have surely put him on the brink of the player of the season prize. He's now a fan favourite and a key cog.

  1. Aaron Wan-Bissaka

The 22-year-old hit the ground running from the off. Yet the former Crystal Palace star still has the scope to improve, as he steadily looks to add a more attacking dimension to his game. The signs for the future are very promising with Wan-Bissaka.

  1. Harry Maguire

You can't question the 27-year-old's importance to United this season. Ever since sealing that move from Leicester, Maguire has willingly shouldered the responsibility to be a leader in the United dressing room, no wonder Solskjaer handed the centre-back the United captaincy.

  1. Marcus Rashford

There is surely no contesting the 22-year-old's status as United's most influential player right now. His 2019/20 goal record and the fact he's a footballing leader make him crucial to Solskjaer's current project at Old Trafford.
