Juan Mata is ranked third.

Mata's lack of pace and strength is more apparent than ever, severely limiting his game-time. The arrival of Bruno Fernandes in 2020 has effectively eliminated Mata's limited opportunities to start often. With United's offense only becoming better this summer, we don't expect to see Mata on the field much.

Anthony Martial, No. 2

When Manchester United bought Anthony Martial from AS Monaco in 2015, there was a lot of excitement and enthusiasm. Martial was one of the most promising young players at the time, with the Frenchman putting in some outstanding performances for Monaco.

Last season, Martial's form dipped once again, which was extremely upsetting for United supporters. Martial has battled with consistency despite being with the club for more than six years. His approach has been described as sluggish and lackluster at times.

Phil Jones, No. 1

Jones was given a lot of trust by Ferguson, but the defender has failed to deliver under numerous managers since the Scottish boss resigned. Jones lacked self-assurance and was frequently intimidated by opponents. Injury has always been a part of his sporting career, adding to his agony.

Jones has been forced to miss more than 150 games for Manchester United due to injury. The 29-year-old was never able to play consistently, and when he did, he had trouble maintaining his form.

Despite the fact that he has been at Manchester United for ten years, he has only made 224 appearances for the club. Jones may be regaining health at the moment, but United cannot afford to keep him.
