Whether it’s Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s 4-2-3-1 or Rangnick’s 4-2-2-2, United have two deep-lying midfielders in every game this season.

Fred and Scott McTominay are often tasked with holding the fort, with some supporters believing the club need more quality in the position if they are to challenge for any title.

The likes of Paul Pogba, Bruno Fernandes and Donny van de Beek are the real stars in midfield – but all are too much of an attack to start in deeper positions.

And United fans have now called on United to recall Garner to resolve their crisis.

One person tweeted: “Our best CDM on loan in the Championship…”

Another wrote: “Really miss him. DM better than McTominay and Fred – and Matic is too old.”
