Manchester United Potential XI vs Tottenham Hotspur: Andreas Pereira starts

by Ben Topliss

Andreas Pereira was undoubtedly one of the standout performers during Manchester United’s pre-season tour of the United States.

The Brazilian was a livewire for Louis van Gaal’s side and he grabbed his first goal for Man United against San Jose Earthquakes with a well taken header.

If van Gaal wants a wildcard to include in his starting XI for the Premier League opener against Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday, he should look no further than Pereira.

Elsewhere, United fans everywhere will be hoping Herrera is handed a start.

The Spaniard looks fantastic whenever he is on the pitch but he barely featured in the USA. There is added competition for Herrera in the middle of the park but he will be looking to nail down a place.

Finally, Memphis Depay is set for a No.10 role against Spurs. Memphis played there for the majority of the tour and showed some promising signs of establishing a partnership with Wayne Rooney.
