Marouane Fellaini, Matteo Darmian and Marcos Rojo have all been included in Louis van Gaal’s 18-man squad for Saturday’s FA Cup final but Memphis Depay misses out, according to the Manchester Evening News.

van Gaal admitted at his pre-match press conference yesterday that he had some tough selection decisions to make after four players put themselves back in contention.

Fellaini returns after serving his three-match suspension while Darmian is back in the squad after overcoming an ankle that kept him out of the final two Premier League games.

Rojo is also back in contention after recovering from the knock that saw him miss the Bournemouth game in midweek and the Argentine is set to replace Cameron Borthwick-Jackson after he was left out of the 18-man travelling party.

Morgan Schneiderlin also returns after recovering from illness, however, the big casualty is summer signing Depay who hasn’t made it in to van Gaal’s 18 despite being included in all 58 of United’s previous matchday squad’s this season.

Phil Jones has also made the cut despite not featuring for the first team squad since way back in January and he was among the travelling party that left for Stockport station on the team bus earlier this evening.

Here is the full 18-man squad according to the Manchester Evening News:

De Gea, Romero, Valencia, Darmian, Jones, Smalling, Blind, Rojo, Fellaini, Herrera, Carrick, Schneiderlin, Lingard, Young, Mata, Rooney, Martial, Rashford

    This would have to be the final straw. So much for giving youth a chance. CBJ has been more than serviceable when given the opportunity this year. So what does he do? That’s right, dump him for the hopelessly talentless Rojo. As a fifty year veteran supporter of this once great club, my heart goes out to CBJ, and my advice to him would be “keep you chin up son, your time will come”. I am praying that we can get the job done in the ninth minutes so we don’t have to experience any more of this turgid, boring, uninspiring, and excessively dull crap that LVG calls football. Then, we can bring down the curtain on this god awful season and move on. RIP LVG………
