Fantasy Football Teams Of Manchester United Players Leaked, Make For Interesting Reading

The fantasy football teams of Manchester United trio Luke Shaw, Phil Jones and Chris Smalling have been found online, with a noticeable lack of United players in the squads.

Paul Pogba and David De Gea are the only Manchester United players that make the cut, with Phil Jones failing to select any of his teammates.

Seriously, who doesn't pick themselves in their own fantasy team?

Interestingly there is a large number of players selected from their greatest rivals, with Manchester City and Liverpool players selected a total of 14 times.

With these two teams likely to top the goal scoring charts come the end of the season, this may not come a surprise, but the fact that this is accepted so clearly by Manchester United may raise some eyebrows.

Jones and Shaw both came up trumps this week by selecting Sergio Agüero as their captain, with Smalling instead plumping for Sadio Mané.

Another league has also seemingly been discovered which includes Cardiff goalkeeper Neil Etheridge, former-United goalkeeper Chris Amos and Smalling's brother Jason.

These team selections may display the lack of confidence the Manchester United players have in their own team this term, seemingly knowing that Mourinho's playing style will not lend to the type of attacking football that will allow them to rack up fantasy points.

Or maybe we are reading too much into this, who knows?

While both Jones and Shaw's team names required little imagination, Chris Smalling has christened his team as 'Kroos Control'. What a cracker.

Of course there is always the chance that these team could be owned by someone impersonating the players, but why anyone would bother to do that is beyond me.
