Manchester United are one of the world’s greatest footballing institutions – there’s no doubt about that. The current squad may not be up to the standards of Sir Alex Ferguson’s treble-winning and double-winning teams of 1999 and 2008 respectively, but there is some great talent in Louis van Gaal’s side.

Yes, gone are the days Ruud van Nistelrooy, Carlos Tevez, Paul Scholes and Rio Ferdinand, but Anthony Martial, Memphis Depay, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Chris Smalling are improving all the time and a title challenge can’t be far from very realistic now.

Using our website’s new feature, Duel, United fans voted for their top players from the current squad. Duel is a process where two players are pitted up against each other. Fans chose the best of the pair, and that player moved onto the next duel, against another player – and so on and so forth.

So, according to United fans themselves, here are United’s top five players – and the percentage of duels they won to gain their spot at the top of the pile.
