Manchester United vs Everton – Predicted XI: Januzaj and RVP return

by Tom Newbold

David de Gea – David Moyes has recently stated how impressed he is with the improvement of De Gea in the last few years as the Spaniard has truly established himself as United’s No. 1.

Chris Smalling – Without any signs of Rafael being ready to start games yet, Moyes will probably stay with trusted Smalling.

Jonny Evans – Young enough to handle a run of games, Evans would appear a certain starter for this game.

Nemanja Vidic – Its a toss up between Vidic and Rio Ferdinand for this centre-back spot with the captain the likelier starter as Romelu Lukaku will need some stopping.

everton-homePatrice Evra – It would be a surprise if Evra didn’t start this game.

Antonio Valencia – Valencia seems to have a knack for beating his man these days and is reliable positionally and defensively, so now needs to add a better final ball to his game.

Marouane Fellaini – In the absence of Michael Carrick and Phil Jones, Fellaini will be required to play in a more defensive midfield position.

Ryan Giggs – After Giggs’ stunning performance last week and a rest at the weekend, Moyes may well use him against Everton, particularly when considering Tom Cleverley’s current abject form.

Adnan Januzaj – Shinji Kagawa has made several consecutive appearances and Danny Welbeck doesn’t look back to full fitness yet, so Moyes may well give the young Belgian a start against Everton.

Wayne Rooney – Rooney is right on top of his game at the moment and could be key against his former club.

Robin van Persie – If he’s back and available, Van Persie could be chosen to start this game.

Formation: 4-4-1-1

With games coming thick and fast for United, squad rotation will be key which is why there are a few changes in the squad but there is such quality in depth at Old Trafford that it shouldn’t effect the performance.
