Luke Shaw's double leg break has left Manchester United with a huge selection headache this season.
Having started the campaign in emphatic style, Shaw's injury has left the Red Devils with a shortage of options in the left-back position.
Marcos Rojo, Matteo Darmian, Daley Blind and Ashley Young have all occupied the role in his absence, but they have different roles to play in the team.

With the England international set to be out for a further eight months, the Old Trafford club are eyeing up a new arrival in January.
Everton youngster Brendan Galloway has drawn admirable glances from Manchester United since breaking into the first-team at Goodison Park, according to the Mirror.
The 19-year-old, who signed from MK Dons in 2014, made his Premier League debut last season and has established himself as the club's starting full-back in the absence of Leighton Baines.
Roberto Martinez has said the England youth international will be offered improved terms at the Toffees, but Manchester United could provide a stern test of their ability to keep hold of the full-back.
The Goodison club have shown they are no pushovers in the transfer market having fought off serious interest from Chelsea for John Stones over the summer.
However, Manchester United have shown they are not afraid to splash the cash in order to get the signings they desire.
The return of Baines could also be a deciding factor in Galloway's future. Having taken to the Premier League like a duck to water, he will not be keen to lose his spot to the returning England international.
