Being a Manchester United fan living in Liverpool is difficult enough as it is, but when the Scousers are outplaying my beloved United it's unbearable. I must stress, I am only in Merseyside because of my education, and after this year I will be straight back to Salford and the sooner it comes, the better. I digress. Sitting in a pub with a few 'acquaintances' last week, one of them, an Everton fan, began to laugh at United's midfield, and couldn't believe that they had finally got rid of Marouane Fellaini.
Manchester United have been going through a few changes this season - yes, changes, that’s a good word to describe it. Currently sitting 8th in the Premier League table, United are really feeling the loss of Sir Alex Ferguson. Last season they were kings, this season, well, it’s a bit of a dull roar right now. However, one thing that has remained the same since last season is Javier Hernandez’s struggle to find his place at the club.
Manchester United face up against Real Sociedad this evening in what promises to be an exciting game, as the La Liga side sit bottom of their group table.

Two Former Manchester United Stars Included In Top 5 Best Central Midfielders In Premier League History
Over the years the Premier League has witnessed some good players, some awful players and some downright amazing players. Many have thrilled us, but who have been the best?
After 10 games of the current Premier League title Manchester United sit eight in the table. Here are the club's five most creative players this season in the league, based on key passes and assists.
After six years at Old Trafford there is a feel that this could be the last season att he club for Portuguese midfielder, and while he has been linked with a move back to his former club Porto, it seems as though it won't go ahead due to funding. However, with new reports coming out that United are interested in Porto pair Eliaquim Mangala and Nicolas Otamendi, perhaps they can come to some agreement to use him as a bargaining chip.
Patrice Evra has established himself as one of the most capable left-backs in European football over the last eight years as he has bossed the flank at Old Trafford. However, after 15 major trophies won with Manchester United the Express are reporting that he's getting ready to pack his bags and depart the reigning champions.
This season has been one of change so far. There has been no Sir Alex Ferguson, Arsenal are top of the league and Jose Mourinho is at the helm at Chelsea. Heck, Liverpool are even up near the top of the Premier League. But there has been one thing still lingering from the summer, and it's starting to grate on me - Manchester United's midfield 'problem'.
