Both Wayne Rooney and Radamel Falcao are also set to start.
Red News reports that van Gaal will start the Belgian midfielder but there is no word on whether he would take up a striker’s role or move into midfield, something which would allow Rooney to go back up front alongside Falcao.
Last week, Red News’ editor Barney was spot on with his early team news ahead of Man United’s game against Burnley so there’s no reason not to believe his information is spot on once again.
That change would delight United fans who have clambered to see Rooney in his natural position following some increasingly ineffectual displays in the middle of the park.
On the other side of the coin, it would disappoint United fans if James Wilson were to be excluded from the starting XI as a large majority thought he could get some much-needed experience during the game.
