Santi Cazorla and Mesut Ozil have created more chances than Manchester United

Published Add your comment

The Arsenal duo of Mesut Ozil and Santi Cazorla have created as many Premier League chances as the whole of the Manchester United side. 

This is according to the Daily Mail, who claim that the Red Devils' total of 81 chances created in the Premier League this season has been matched by the duo starring in north London. 

With the Gunners sitting alongside Manchester City at the top of the Premier League table, Ozil and Cazorla have been in sensational form for Arsene Wenger's side in the early stages of the campaign.

Manchester United, despite sitting in fourth position in England's elite division, have been in uninspiring form of late. In fact, after three straight games without scoring a goal, Louis van Gaal's side have come in for criticism during their barren run. 

Unsurprisingly, the likes of Wayne Rooney, Memphis Depay and Co. have all had their fair share of problems for the Red Devils.

What's wrong? 

There's a feeling that captain Rooney is no longer good enough to lead the line for United. With just two Premier League goals this term, the England international has failed to produce the goods on a consistent basis. 

Perhaps, then, it's time to take Rooney out of the side. Handing Anthony Martial a role up front could benefit the Red Devils if Juan Mata is deployed in the No.10 role. 

Perhaps handing more natural wide-men places on the wing will help United stretch teams and create more opportunities. Ander Herrera could star alongside Bastian Schweinsteiger, Morgan Schneiderlin or Michael Carrick in the centre of the park to help improve the side as an attacking threat. 

Manchester United fans: what should Van Gaal do to improve things? Have your say below!
