Manchester United’s best XI vs Swansea City: Ander Herrera starts

by Ben Topliss

Three points against Swansea City this weekend is a must for Manchester United and Louis van Gaal.

Van Gaal is currently under huge pressure at Man United having overseen an eight game winless streak in all competitions and he will be desperate for three points.

He will be tempted to play the same starting XI against Swansea as he did against Chelsea as United were much improved against the Premier League champions:

Ander Herrera is much better at No.10 than in a deeper role while Morgan Schneiderlin is more than capable of sweeping up in the middle of the park.

Anthony Martial is adapting well to a role on the left hand side and Wayne Rooney will be full of confidence after receiving plaudits for his display against Chelsea.

It is a strong XI and one that is much more creative, so supporters shouldn’t see a repeat of the kinds of performances which have led to defeats against Stoke and Norwich lately. Whatever line up van Gaal plays, he needs the win.
