De Gea; Rafael, Smalling, Vidic, Evra; Carrick, Cleverley; Valencia, Rooney, Janujaz; van Persie.
Let's compare that with the other top sides:
Hart; Zabaleta, Kompany, Demichelis, Clichy; Navas, Yaya, Fernandinho, Silva; Dzeko, Negredo.
Mignolet; Johnson, Skrtel, Sakho, Cissokho; Allen, Gerrard, Henderson; Sterling, Suarez, Coutinho.
Cech; Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry, Azpilicueta; Ramires, Lampard; Willian, Oscar, Hazard; Eto'o.
Sczeszny; Sagna, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Gibbs; Arteta, Ramsey; Walcott, Ozil, Cazorla; Giroud.
Howard; Coleman, Distin, Jagielka, Baines; McCarthy, Barry; Mirallas, Barkley, Pienaar; Lukaku.
Lloris; Walker, Dawson, Vertonghen, Rose; Paulinho, Dembele; Townsend, Eriksen, Sigurdsson; Soldado.
I won't get into a subjective analysis of those teams (without even getting into the subject of depth or the validity of Whoscored's stats) but ManU being in the top 3 out of those is very debatable, with or without Moyes. It doesn't help that Moyes is probably the 6th out of the 7 managers of those teams whereas Ferguson was probably the 1st for the last 5 years but I don't think your squad has been particularly good since you had Rooney, Tevez and Ronaldo in that front-line.
ManU wouldn't crack my top 4 out of those squads, and it might not even get 5th. Moyes isn't the only one to blame although he's definitely not helped the club progress at all.
You forgot Mata, Jones and Kagawa. Using Whoscored isn't an accurate way at all of determining the best lineup. That moron is just not using the right players, particularly Kagawa and Jones.
But I get your point, a Fergie-less United team would be difficult to break into the top 3 but SHOULD be better than Tottenham, Everton and maybe Arsenal. Should be top 4 or 5. Not top 3.
