Manchester United – The main concern seems to focus on Man United’s central midfield. 

Gene Um of the Busby Babe defuses some of that notion, honing in on two key players:

Michael Carrick:

The England international divides opinion and perhaps this is due to fluctuation in his form - he certainly appears to be a confidence player. Undoubtedly though, Carrick was terrific last season during the run-in, particularly in Champions League play. For the upcoming season, Carrick will most likely resume his duties in a holding role and look to dictate the tempo of the matches while shielding his defense.

Darren Fletcher:

Fletcher has gone to establish himself at United and he is generally regarded as a valuable squad player now. The industrious midfielder is a natural box-to-box player, but he's also shown his versatility by being able to play wide on the right - both in midfield and in defense. His passing is assured as well, as the Scot is accurate with his short passing, even if he is somewhat uninspiring in his playmaking abilities. This is fine though as Fletcher's role is simply to provide bite in the midfield and to keep possession - something that he does very well.

Man United will have Chelsea and Manchester City breathing down its back.  Both teams have very short odds, not too much off from The Red Devils. 

The Truly Red Blog noted that Wayne Rooney, Dimitar Berbatov, et al. will be key to keeping Man United a step above the rest:

In addition, for the second half of the last season, Wayne Rooney found the form which made him one of the most feared footballers on the planet. If he can maintain his form and build on his blossoming partnership with Javier Hernandez, coupled with the rotation of Dimitar Berbatov and Welbeck in the side to ensure complacency doesn’t sink in with the strikeforce, Manchester United should be looking at goals galore for the season ahead.
