Strong potential 4-2-3-1 vs Sheffield United: Herrera and Rooney both in

by Ben Topliss

Manchester United ended their eight game winless streak in all competitions against Swansea City on Saturday and it is likely that Louis van Gaal will want his side to build some momentum against Sheffield United in the FA Cup next week.

Man United have been playing abysmally in recent weeks but the win against Swansea was a big confidence boost.

A loss against Sheffield United would see any signs of optimism disappear and it is likely that van Gaal will play a strong side in the clash as a result:

Andreas Pereira will be hopeful of starting in the match as he continues his development at Old Trafford.

The Brazilian featured in United’s short-lived Capital One Cup run and he has made some appearances from the substitute’s bench here and there in the Premier League.

Wayne Rooney, meanwhile, will be keen to build on his positive display against Swansea, where he scored United’s winning goal with an audacious flick. Whatever the line up, it is crucial that United ensure their safe passage through the tie.
