What Manchester United players have really impressed you this pre-season?
Focusing on the positives.

For me,

Tuanzebe, he seems really comfortable on the ball, and always seems to have time whenever he's on it to pick the right pass. I feel he's not that physically, but I'd certainly have him behind Lindelof and Maguire. Tuanzebe reminds me a bit of Hummels but with pace. 3.5/5

Greenwood, I really like goalscorers who are a magnet to the ball in the top third. He seems to be one, the amount of chances he gets in a game is probably the most in our squad whenever he's on.
He is comfortable on both feet, and is very good in the wide areas as a CF. I would honestly back him to score 10+ goals this season. 5/ 5

Angel Gomes, we don't have any player who is even remotely close to Angel Gomes, extremely skillful dribbler and his crosses actually find the right man. I think he is on the last year of contract, and I've been impressed with the most this season. I love how good he is technically, reminds me a bit of younger Iniesta. 5/5

Dan James, I think he is Ji Sung Park version 2 with pace overloaded.
He works his absolute socks off, and is a magnet for fouls, really good player to have against aging/ slower CBs. 3/5

AWB, I haven't seen someone tackle so much at a fullback in ages in our club. Seems like a wonderful signing. Good attacking wise as well. 4/5

McTominay, right now he seems like a perfect midfielder Jose Mourinho would sign if he came at a club for 50m or so. He can cover all midfield positions, and his range of passing seems Carrick-esque, which is beautiful to watch. Plus he has legs to cover, and his negative passing has seemed to be ironed out as he has grown in confidence. 5/5

Chong, I don't see how he's ahead of Angel Gomes. He hasn't made me feel he can cut it here, until the Inter Milan game where he was a menace on the LW. He looks to me as more of a hard working left winger, and that is probably it. 2.5/5

Pereira, I think he's been solid if not spectacular. Seems like a technical player you might want to play if you want to pack your midfield, delivers quality crosses. 3/5.

I would have liked to see more of James Garner, but he too seems like a real talent, and looked really comfortable with the ball on his feet in the limited minutes he gets.

With the way Ole is having a positive impact on our younger players, I'm really curious to see how Fosu-Mensah reacts in the current setup.
I think TFM is not positionally good, but seems to me as an energetic Gung Ho box to box midfielder.

Also on a side note, I would prefer if Matic, Mata, Lingard, Smalling, Jones etc aren't regular starters.
The likes of Fred, Pereira, McTominay, Greenwood, Dan James, Tuanzebe Gomes etc have shown
they have the raw potential to succeed here.
