Rio Ferdinand believes both Luke Shaw and Aaron Wan-Bissaka will have their work cut out trying to force their way into Ralf Rangnick's new look Manchester United team.
Rangnick, 63, took charge of the Red Devils for the first time on Sunday, as United edged past Crystal Palace 1-0 at Old Trafford.
The former RB Leipzig coach opted to keep Alex Telles and Diogo Dalot at full-back, with Wan-Bissaka consigned to the bench.
Shaw, who came in for criticism from Rangnick last year, was still missing following the injury he picked up against Watford in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's final game in charge.
Rangnick has been vocal about the style of football he wants to play at United, and Ferdinand does not believe that Shaw or Wan-Bissaka have the capability with the ball at their feet to satisfy the coach's demands.
"I've got to be honest, Wan-Bissaka has got a hell of a job getting back in this team. The same for Luke Shaw," Ferdinand said on his FIVE YouTube channel.
"They've both got one hell of a job. One thing this manager likes is full-backs who can actually play and get on the ball.
Should Rangnick keep faith with Dalot and Telles? Let us know in the comments section.
"As well as doing the other stuff like pressing, he wants output with the ball. That's the weakest part of Wan-Bissaka's game, there's going to be a big fight for him to get back into this team."
Dalot was thrust into the side ahead of Wan-Bissaka for both the 3-2 win over Arsenal and the 1-0 success against Palace.
His re-emergence has come as something of a surprise to most – although not to the man himself.
Speaking after the victory over Palace, Dalot insisted he is determined to nail down a starting berth under Rangnick.

"It's what I'm here for," he told the club's website. "It's not easy when you're outside [the starting XI] and you don't play as much.
"But our job to keep ready and I think I was doing a fantastic job outside the pitch being ready.
"When the opportunity comes, I now feel I need to keep going and give everything when I'm on the pitch too."
