Predicted XI: Manchester United vs Tottenham Hotspur

by Sam Peoples

David de Gea Sorry Victor Valdes, you’re on the bench still.

Rafael da Silva – Now is the time for Rafael to come back into the team.

Phil Jones Could be Chris Smalling. Hard to decide between them.

Marcos Rojo Van Gaal confirmed he had a slight knock but he’s a fighter and won’t let that get in the way (unless it is more serious).

Ashley Young Has said he is fit and with Luke Shaw suffering a niggle, Young should start at left-back.

Michael Carrick Time for Carrick to return and bring some composure back into United.

Marouane Fellaini Don’t want him to start but looking at a ‘balance’, van Gaal might play him a deeper role.

Ander Herrera United need Herrera to be able to run forward and attack Spurs.

Juan Mata Like Rafael, this is the opportunity Mata has been waiting for.

Wayne Rooney United will be looking towards Rooney for goals.

Radamel Falcao – We’ve gone for Falcao ahead of Wilson here but it could go either way. If van Gaal thinks he can cope with the pressure, he should start him.
