Fans’ view: Who should be dropped for Wayne Rooney to play up front against Burnley?

by Sam Peoples

Wayne Rooney‘s position has been one of the most talked about topics this week so ahead of Manchester United’s game against Burnley tonight, we asked The Peoples Person’s readers a question:

“Who would you drop out of Radamel Falcao and Robin van Persie so that Wayne Rooney could start up front against Burnley?”

There was a real diversity in the answers we got back. While plenty felt Van Persie was the right man to drop, there were just as many who argued Falcao was the player who should be sacrificed.

As well as dropping both players individually, some thought Van Persie and Falcao both deserved to be dropped in order to let Rooney play up front alongside Wilson, a partnership which hasn’t had much, if any, opportunity to flourish so far under Louis van Gaal.

Here’s what some fans thought about the question of whether to drop Van Persie or Falcao for Rooney:

Who do you think should be dropped for Rooney out of Van Persie and Falcao or do you think Rooney shouldn’t start up front? Let us know in the comments and get involved in our #fansview series.
