MUTV Predicted XI vs Newcastle: Di Maria dropped for Januzaj

by Sam Peoples

MUTV’s Stewart Gardner has predicted Adnan Januzaj will come into Manchester United’s starting XI in place of Angel di Maria who would drop to the bench.

The Belgian youngster had a fantastic impact from the bench having been brought on at half-time against Sunderland last weekend and although it was against ten men, nothing should be taken away from how well he played.

Di Maria’s poor form as of late means he is certainly not guaranteed a spot in the starting XI and if van Gaal wants to use his form players, then Januzaj’s inclusion seems logical.

As for the rest of the team, there is no Luke Shaw but Phil Jones has been chosen to partner Jonny Evans with Marcos Rojo in the left-back role.

Radamel Falcao would no doubt love to have the opportunity to play up front in a lone role and in an away game, van Gaal may well choose to compact the midfield to bring more defensive stability given that United have only recorded three wins away from home this season.
