MUTV Predicted XI: Man Utd vs Cambridge – Valdes debut, Herrera starts

by Sam Peoples

MUTV’s Stewart Gardner has named his predicted XI for Manchester United’s game against Cambridge United tonight.

Victor Valdes gets the nod in goal as Gardner feels his absence from Man United’s U21s match last night against Fulham indicates Louis van Gaal is ready to hand him his debut, given that he played in the previous U21s game.

Ander Herrera also returns into central midfield and Wayne Rooney has been pushed up front, a position in which he has put in his best performances this season.

Defensively, Chris Smalling gets a recall and plays alongside Marcos Rojo with Luke Shaw and Antonio Valencia in the full-back positions.

This starting XI sees Angel di Maria, Radamel Falcao and Robin van Persie get rested ahead of the weekend fixture against West Ham.
