MUTV’s Manchester United XI vs Liverpool: Angel di Maria starts

by Sam Peoples

There has been plenty of speculation surrounding Manchester United’s starting XI this weekend and mainly over one selection choice – does Angel di Maria come straight back into the starting XI for Juan Mata?

MUTV’s Stewart Gardner thinks Louis van Gaal will bring Di Maria back into the team alongside Ashley Young on the opposite wing of a 4-3-3 with Wayne Rooney in the middle.

Apart from that change, it’s an unchanged XI and after Man United’s superb performance against Tottenham Hotspur last weekend, van Gaal would be smart to keep that same team together as much as possible.

However, it might be a smart move to bring Di Maria into the side over Mata simply because of his pace. United are going to have to hit Liverpool on the counter-attack which is where the Argentinian can be so dangerous.
