In Manchester United's must win game against Wolfsburg earlier in the week, fans were amazed to see Louis van Gaal take off arguably our best performing player, Juan Mata, and replace him with Nick Powell.
Powell has been out in the wilderness for some time now, having failed to make the most of his loan move to Leicester, where he wasn't played because of his poor attitude.
During the pre-season just gone, Manchester United youth players averaged 122 minutes of football each, and a total of 855 over five games.
City youth players averaged 119 minutes minutes each with a total of 1667 minutes. Spurs 98.8 minutes and a total of 593, Liverpool 97.4 minutes and a total of 1169, Arsenal 67.
Juan Mata scored 10 goals for Manchester United last season, nine of which came in the Premier League, which according to statistics published on Squawka, make his contribution the most valuable in the league.
He scored both goals in United's 2-1 win at Anfield, in our 3-0 win over Liverpool at home, against City in the 4-2 win, the 1-0 win against Crystal Palace at home and the 2-1 win away, , the 2-1 win over Stoke, as well as the 4-0 win over QPR and 1-1 draw with Sunderland.
More stats for you, this time it's the youngest and oldest players to play or start a game for Kansas City in league or in all competitions.
In 2015 unfortnately there was no movement on any list as no player that debuted for Kansas City jumped on the list for the youngest player to appear in a game.
Arsene Wenger has caused a bit of a stir amongst United fans this week by claiming that the club no longer has the patience to develop youth, unlike Arsenal.
We want to continue to combine stronger financial resources with faith in our philosophy and policy. That means we want to continue to give chances to young players and build the players from inside our club with our culture.
