David de Gea Just for a change, Louis van Gaal will start De Gea in goal.

Marcos Rojo – Van Gaal doesn’t risk players if they aren’t fully fit, so Luke Shaw will most likely be rested.

Chris Smalling – With Rojo at left-back, Smalling would lead the heart of defence.

Jonny Evans – No unnecessary backpasses to De Gea please Jonny.

Antonio Valencia We want to say Rafael but that just won’t happen.

Ander Herrera Now a regular starter just like he should be.

Daley Blind United’s midfield pin. Without him, the shape falls apart.

Wayne Rooney Up front or in midfield? It all depends on van Gaal’s formation.

Angel di Maria – Might be out of form but won’t be out of the team.

Ashley Young – Should start, one of United’s best players at the moment.

Radamel Falcao – Van Persie’s absence gives the Colombian another chance to turn his fortunes around.
