Tom Thorpe – Tom deserves a chance more than most. United’s Under-21s captain could be just as impressive as Tyler Blackett if given the opportunity.
Jonny Evans – Having recently come back to training, a match like this could prove vital for Evans’ fitness.
Reece James – Has strangely been left out following an impressive pre-season tour but should start in this match.
Phil Jones – One of the season’s best performers so far. Will continue to improve the more games he plays.
Marnick Vermijl – Like Thorpe, has more than earned his chance with the first-team.
Darren Fletcher – Poor game against Sunderland but his experience would be crucial in a young side.
Nick Powell – United fans are desperate to see Powell given a chance with the first team and this is as good an opportunity as you’ll get.
Shinji Kagawa – The Japanese playmaker needs match time and will surely feature against MK Dons in some capacity.
James Wilson – Having trained with the first-team last week, Wilson is ready to shine and just needs the platform.
Robin van Persie – Needs match time to get fully fit.
What is your starting XI vs MK Dons?
