Manchester United’s first away game of the season is this Friday against Aston Villa.
A trip to Villa Park is never easy for Man United and in recent games it has seen Radamel Falcao score in what was a rare moment of joy for the Colombian and it was the scene for a Javier Hernandez hat-trick in an enthralling comeback win.
On Friday, there is one major question on the lips of every United fan – will David de Gea start?
Louis van Gaal left him out against Tottenham Hotspur but with reports this week suggesting United have made it very clear he isn’t going anywhere, surely now is the time for him to play.
We’ve also gone for a traditional 4-3-3 formation which would see Bastian Schweinsteiger start his first game for United, so long as he is 100% fit which, by the sounds of it, he all but is.
Up front, we’ve also gone for what lots of fans are waiting to see – Memphis Depay on the left wing.
What do you think of this starting XI? Do you think this is the strongest team Van Gaal could put out against Aston Villa. Let us know in the comments.
