The 33 players Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal has used in five matches

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has used no fewer than 33 players in five competitive matches so far this season.

Manchester United are preparing to take on Leicester City at the King Power Stadium on Sunday.

It will be the Red Devils’ fifth Premier League game of the season, and one that many football followers expect them to win.

United will head into the clash on the back of a 4-0 hammering of Queens Park Rangers at Old Trafford last weekend.

It was Louis van Gaal’s first competitive win as United manager, and one which saw the number of players he has used so far this season rise to 33.

United have played in four Premier League games and one League Cup tie, and have used five more players than any other English top-flight side.

It seems that former Barcelona and Bayern Munich coach Van Gaal has been tinkering with his team for a while, but following the close of the summer transfer window earlier this month, the 63-year-old Dutchman now has the squad he is happy with.
