But Jenas thinks that he may have found the solution by pairing him with Fellaini in the middle of the park.
"The Belgian was superb on Saturday in numerous ways". Chris Smalling and Victor Lindelof will be forming the centre-back pairing for the trip to Hertfordshire.
The likes of Paul Pogba, Fred and Lukaku can all be seen dancing and singing on their journey back home. Up until when the Chilean joined, Rashford was starting the equivalent of every 1.8 games, whereas that has increased to every 2.5 matches since.
"Fellaini allowed Pogba to create, to make things happen, to try to score".
It could've been 3-0 had Antonio Valencia sprung Romelu Lukaku on a 2v1, but the Ecuadorian's later pass led Lukaku to touch the ball to Alexis Sanchez and the Chilean couldn't manufacture a shot. It seemed to backfire on Benitez: Liverpool drew that game 0-0 and Steve Gerrard - who hit the post late in that game - would later question Benitez' timing. His physical presence was disruptive and important. His cross to the other side was played back to Young at the top left corner by Smalling but his pass into the vital area was bundled home via Belgium's forward stomach, with Watford players calling for a handball.
Pogba has refused to shut down talk of a move away from Old Trafford, saying during the worldwide break "who knows what will happen in the next few months".

If the Mourinho era at United were a rom-com - which it absolutely is not - Fellaini would be the leading man.
After consecutive defeats against Brighton & Hove Albion and Tottenham Hotspur, United are looking a little more settled. "We had a similar conversation last season about Marouane [Fellaini] and I was always saying I hope he stays, I believe he stays".
"I feel a bit frustrated because we had everything in the first half to kill the game, if we play the second half the way we did in the last part of the first half, we would be in this moment a completely different result".
"I think I can expect that Sunday I'm going to be highly criticised for not playing him because some of the boys are obsessed with me and some of them they have, I think, a problem with some compulsive lies", he said.
"He's playing simple and well".
"If I was still in that dressing room giving personal advice it would be, 'Paul, it's obvious you want to play somewhere else but be professional".
