MUTV Predicted XI vs Chelsea: Radamel Falcao starts

by Sam Peoples

MUTV’s Stewart Gardner has given his Manchester United predicted XI against Chelsea and chosen Radamel Falcao to start up front with Wayne Rooney moving into a deeper holding midfield position.

Injuries to Michael Carrick and Daley Blind mean Louis van Gaal is in need of a makeshift holding midfielder, so Rooney is the most likely to step into that role.

Patrick McNair comes in for the injured Phil Jones and Marcos Rojo to start alongside Chris Smalling in the heart of defence.

Elsewhere, Luke Shaw returns in at left-back. He has had to wait patiently for an opportunity which Blind’s injury has given to him.

Ashley Young and Juan Mata keep their places on the wings meaning Angel di Maria still has to settle for a place on the bench while the in-form Marouane Fellaini and Ander Herrera complete the midfield in front of Rooney.
