Old Trafford has had many heroes over the years. This is unsurprising, given the club's rich history. Sir Matt Busby and Sir Alex Ferguson, orchestrators of the two great periods of sustained success, have been immortalised, in statue form, outside the ground.

Quality comes in many forms. Not every player is able to flash their calibre through such self-evident acts of brilliance as a decisive finish, a last-ditch tackle, a defence-splitting pass or some mazy dribble past multiple markers.

Louis van Gaal has spoken of his happiness at United's young players representing England at U-21 level. Whilst other managers have objected to their players being used, the Dutchman thinks the likes of Luke Shaw, Phil Jones and Will Keane can benefit from the experience.
