Manchester United's £225million spending spree, which was the highest in a transfer window in the club's history, was in fact to sustain a project like Erik ten Hag's in charge of the Red Devils. The team is on a winning streak of four consecutive matches and will be looking to extend the winning streak, in order to maintain a place in the top places.

The team made key signings, as well as having the confidence of players who are not constant in Man Utd's starting eleven. Without a doubt it is going to be a very complicated month, the reason is that many games will be played in a short period of time, and despite having players who are in good form, they will have to depend on the bench to be able to come out of those games with a positive balance.
