Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will have a number of players to choose from after Man United managed to seal four signings on transfer deadline day.
Man United had a relatively inactive window compared to their rivals including Chelsea who splashed more than £200million on six major signings.
Their inactivity in transfer business saw a number of fans take to social media to express their displeasure.

Solskjaer had Jadon Sancho top on their transfer wish-list but missed out on the Borussia Dortmund winger.
But somehow, the club managed to complete exciting deals on deadline day, with Edinson Cavani among the players the Manchester side signed.
Cavani is expected to bolster United's attack, but there are fears the Uruguayan could usurp Anthony Martial for a striking role.
But it is almost given the veteran striker will only play second fiddle to Martial, with the Frenchman partnering Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood in attack.
Telles is perhaps the only new signing expected to walk straight into the first team, with the left-back sure to depose Luke Shaw from the position thanks to his attacking versatility.
The Brazilian could therefore be paired with Wan-Bissaka, with Victor Lindelof and Harry Maguire forming the heart of defence after United failed to sign a new centre-back.
Paul Pogba and Nemanja Matic could be drafted in the midfield, with Bruno Fernandes keeping his place in the no.10 role.
Be that as it may, it remains to be seen who Solskjaer could settle on as his preferred starting XI.
Man United are scheduled to take on Newcastle in their next league match.
Earlier, Legit.ng reported that Bruno Fernandes had a bust-up with manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at half time of Man United's 6-1 defeat to Tottenham last week.
The defeat which was Man United heaviest home loss since 2013, had Fernandes extremely furious at this teammates and the tactics of his manager.
According to staff member on that matchday, Fernandes could be heard repeatedly shouting: "We are supposed to be Manchester United. This shouldn’t be happening."
