The area has been somewhat problematic for a number of seasons and has been a contentious subject for fans used to seeing the might of the likes of Robson and Keane.
On Friday, despite a long term injury to Anderson and Tom Cleverley being out until Christmas, Sir Alex stated he would not be dipping into the transfer market this January to strengthen the midfield.
And Darren Fletcher agrees with his manager’s decision stating United have a more than capable midfield;
“We’ve got quality midfield players and I don’t see what all the fuss is about.
“We have been successful with the midfield and the squad we’ve got.
“I’m not going to say it’s an insult for people to suggest we don’t have enough flair or creativity in midfield because they are entitled to their opinion and are going to say whatever they wish. We can’t control that.
“If we start thinking about that then it’s obviously going to affect us on the pitch.
“We’ve been at Manchester United long enough to realise that criticism is always going to be there. It’s part and parcel of the job.
“But we have got players who create in wide areas, in forward ones and in midfield as well.”
