Manchester United face a defensive crisis as Louis Van Gaal's already thin defensive options have been further stretched by Chris Smalling's umpteenth injury.

Smalling suffered a thigh strain in training on Wednesday and is unlikely he'll be fit to face West Ham on Saturday, leaving Van Gaal without a recognised centre-back, given Jonny Evans and Phil Jones are also sidelined, while Michael Carrick, who had been touted as a possible short-term solution in the role, is still two weeks away from return.

It could get worse, before it gets better

Michael Carrick has warned United fans that things might have to get worse before they eventually get better at Old Trafford and that this season's demise is made worse because of how used United were to dominate opponents in England over the last two decades.

Having conceded a late equaliser against Fulham on Sunday, United will almost surely miss out on Champions League football for the first time in 19 years, while even a place in the Europa League seems in danger at the moment, given the dismal record David Moyes' men have put together since the turn of the year.

For this article, I thought I would look at the 3 players who I think have improved the most over the current season for the U-18 team. It's been a disappointing season in the main but that can partly be put down to the fact that a lot of this year's crop are either first year apprentices or even U-16 players who have had to move up an age group when U-18 players have been selected for the U-21, either to cover for players gone out on loan or on current form.
