Man United’s Strongest XI and formation vs Everton – Carrick’s back

by Sam Peoples

David de Gea Was there ever any doubt? No change for our no.1 goalkeeper?

Antonio Valencia – No alternative now that Rafael is out for the season with broken ribs.

Chris Smalling Will be overflowing with confidence having signed a new Manchester United contract this week.

Paddy McNair Tough choice here but we went for McNair so he could continue his excellent form from Chelsea.

Luke Shaw Similar to McNair, Shaw needs to start after how well he played last week.

Michael Carrick Desperately missed him against Chelsea and Louis van Gaal will want him back as soon as possible.

Ander Herrera Had to play a deeper role at Stamford Bridge but Carrick’s return would free him up.

Marouane Fellaini Back at his old ground, Fellaini will be desperate to impress.

Juan Mata The graceful Juan certainly needs to start.

Ashley Young His crosses to Fellaini could be one of the most important aspects of the game.

Wayne Rooney Typically plays badly on Merseyside but it won’t stop van Gaal from starting his captain.
