Moyes' boys: Wingers

On 1 July, David Moyes will officially inherit a star-studded squad to mount his assault on the Barclays Premier League during the 2013/14 season.

And the former Everton manager will be spoilt for choice. Here, having analysed his batch of goalkeepersfull-backs and centre-halves, we assess the wingers that will be at his disposal. Click on their names to also view extensive profiles...

Ryan Giggs: Where do you start? The Reds legend is the most decorated British player of all time and tops the appearance charts at Old Trafford. Although he has adopted a central role in recent years, his form on the flank last term proved he’s not yet done with the art of wing wizardry.

Antonio Valencia: Having swept the board at the 2011/12 end-of-season awards, the Ecuadorian was handed the iconic no.7 shirt at United, an honour reserved for a special few. His form dipped a little last term, but a vast improvement at the business end hints at a bright future under Moyes.

Ashley Young: Although injury blighted his 2012/13 season, the former Aston Villa star showed glimpses of his unquestionable talent and, of course, bagged his first title winners’ medal. His pace, trickery and crossing remains a formidable weapon that must be utilised.

Nani: Since joining in 2007, the Portuguese ace has become one of United’s most potent players who can turn a match on its head with a single flick of his right or left boot. With a trick book to rival compatriot and ex-Red Cristiano Ronaldo, he is a man not to be messed with.

Wilfried Zaha: Quite simply, the former Crystal Palace starlet is one of the most exciting prospects in the English game. Although originally signed in January 2013 but loaned back to Palace, he officially joins his team-mates on 1 July and will hope to integrate quickly.
