Tottenham Hotspur vs Man United: Team News – Fosu-Mensah starts

by Sam Peoples

Manchester United XI vs Spurs: De Gea, Fosu-Mensah, Smalling, Blind, Rojo, Schneiderlin, Carrick, Mata, Lingard, Martial, Rashford.

Subs: Romero, Darmian, Valencia, Young, Fellaini, Herrera, Memphis.

Timothy Fosu-Mensah starts at White Hart Lane in what will be his biggest game to date for Manchester United. Louis van Gaal has brought him in for Matteo Darmian who drops to the bench inexplicably ahead of Marcos Rojo who keeps his place in the team.

Michael Carrick and Morgan Schneiderlin have a tough afternoon ahead in midfield but we’ve got lots of pace in attack, so if we can stay strong and disciplined in defence and hit Spurs on the counter-attack, then we can do some damage today.

Overall, that’s a decent line-up but the major concern for me is Rojo, especially with Spurs’ full-backs who have been crucial for their attacking system this season.
