Javier Hernandez, Jonny Evans, Shinji Kagawa and Nani are a few names that deserve to show their talent on the pitch for United.
Having become accustomed to the bench after the arrival of David Moyes - a move that has so far seen lack of player rotation - these players aren’t getting the game-time they deserve.
Following the snub to the substitutes, fatigue has caught up with the first-team starters, as they looked off their game and tired in the 4-1 loss to Manchester City.
The indispensable pair of Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand is one of the best in the world, arguably the best the Premier League has ever seen, but age has caught up with the players and even they cannot carry the defence week after week.
Michael Carrick has also been playing every game since the start of the season and should be rested in games of less virtue if United hope that the midfielder remains match-fit all season.
Jonny Evans has come of age with his mature performances for the club while Hernandez scored 14 goals off the bench last season for United and has remarkable movement and finishing in front of the goal.
Kagawa showed what he is capable late season with a hat-trick against Norwich City, and Nani is one guy who on his day can make the best defenders look like a clueless clown.
All of United’s current second string are good enough to play for the Premier League, as proven in last night's Capital One Cup success over Liverpool, and the players must be given a chance on a more regular basis to showcase their ability.
