Man Utd Player of the Season 2023-24 power rankings: Harry Maguire climbs to No.1 as Alejandro Garnacho also rises but Raphael Varane tumbles

Published:

Erik ten Hag’s side have made a steady improvement in the Premier League after a dire start – who has shone brightest and who needs to step up?

What’s that noise in the distance? It’s the sound of Manchester United’s quiet resurgence. After making their worst start to a season since 1989, the Red Devils are back on track.

At times it has felt like they have been crawling their way back rather than being on the march, but the statistics don’t lie: Erik ten Hag’s side are the most in-form team in the Premier League, with five wins in their last six matches. They have climbed from 10th up to sixth, just six points behind leaders Arsenal and five from Manchester City.

United’s upturn in form in the league has been offset by disastrous defeats to Copenhagen in the Champions League and Newcastle in the Carabao Cup, but there is still a feeling of hope once more around Old Trafford.

United’s resurgence has flown under the radar largely because it has been built on defensive stability and led by the most unexpected of figures: Harry Maguire. United’s former captain has re-established himself as the team’s best defender and condemned Raphael Varane to the substitutes’ bench, striking up a fine partnership once again with Victor Lindelof.

The team have also been lifted by some moments of magic from Bruno Fernandes and Alejandro Garnacho, who scored one of the goals of the season against Everton. With Luke Shaw making a welcome return and Kobbie Mainoo having a spectacular league debut after also coming back from a long injury lay-off, are United on the rise again?
