I expect SAF to make another 2-3 signings which, along with Kagawa, should strengthen us considerably. If Vidic returns to full fitness and form he will provide a massive boost, likewise Fletcher. Clearly injuries will have a huge bearing, as we will need the likes of Cleverley and Anderson (if he is still here) to feature far more than last season. One expects de Gea, Evans, Wellbeck, Smalling, Rafael and Jones to have gained a bit more 'know how' from last season's experiences, whilst Young should find more consistency. I also have a feeling that Hernandez may well benefit the most from the introduction of Kagawa, and the more fluid system I expect us to play. Hernandez's strengths are his movement and finishing, which the team should be more equipped for when he plays.
The tough fixtures towards the end of the season might be no bad thing, as we tend to focus more in the harder games!
Here's looking forward to a great title race, which I expect the Manchester teams to lead ... to the continued dismay of the southerners!
