Shinji Kagawa produced a few promising moments late against Real Sociedad on Wednesday after he moved into a central role but he was marginalized starting in a wide position.
There was a great deal of optimism entering the season about Shinji Kagawa a) getting more playing time under David Moyes and b) producing the results expected last season for a bargain price with the increased minutes. If Wednesday's Champions League match is any indication then fantasy managers shouldn't expect any change soon. David Moyes' decision to start Kagawa in a wide role saw him marginalized and ineffective. Only when Javier Hernandez was withdrawn and Wayne Rooney moved into the lone striker role with Kagawa in a central supporting role did the creative midfielder start producing some results. Nothing came of a number of promising opportunities but chances were created for Rooney and Kagawa that on other days would have resulted in goals. The problem for Kagawa's long term outlook is that Rooney is likely to continue to occupy his best position when van Persie returns to health. es Thu, Oct 24, 2013 04:51:00 PM
