David de Gea – Keep a clean sheet please Dave, we need it.
Matteo Darmian – Hope he starts at right-back. As good as he has been covering at left-back, he needs to be playing in his natural position.
Chris Smalling – Should hopefully not be too busy but maybe the same Newcastle that showed up at Old Trafford will turn up again.
Daley Blind – Want to see him start at centre-back.
Cameron Borthwick-Jackson – Was good in parts against Sheffield United but needs to look up more before playing his final ball.
Marouane Fellaini – I really don’t want him to play there but I can see Fellaini starting in central midfield.
Ander Herrera – This is his time to shine in the advanced central midfield role.
Jesse Lingard – He’s got his fitness back and we need direct pace on the wings.
Wayne Rooney – Will start as the lone striker in this formation.
Anthony Martial – United will be looking to Martial to sprinkle the magic dust as we have all season.
Formation: 4-3-3 – Go big or go home. It’s time for van Gaal to release the shackles and play in a 4-3-3 formation which this team is crying out for.
