Predicted Man Utd Starting XI To Face Stoke City – Januzaj To Return?

By on October 25, 2013

Manchester United welcome Stoke City to Old Trafford with the defending champions looking to get their title defence back on track. 

The Red Devils head into the game sitting eighth in the table and a full 8 points adrift of leaders Arsenal following last weeks 1-1 draw with Southampton.

David Moyes is expected to recall striker Robin van Persie for the visit of Stoke after the Dutchman missed Wednesday’s 1-0 win over Real Sociedad with a slight knock. Marouane Fellaini is also likely to be recalled having been rested in midweek and the Belgian international should line-up alongside Michael Carrick in midfield.

Captain Nemanja Vidic could make a return from injury and is likely to play with Jonny Evans at the back while youngster Adnan Januzaj could get another start on the left, although Shinji Kagawa will be hopeful of retaining his place after a decent showing against Real.

Here is the eleven Moyes could go with:

What do you think of the team? What would your line-up be?

      Dude its very simple.

      Valencia is cr4p. Nani is cr4p and ashley young is cr4p.

      rvp up top. Kagawa in the hole. Januzaj on the right. Rooney on the left.

    Kagawa is the best to start with,he is a play maker,he can attack very well,he hustles for the ball,he is skillful with pace,his moves are awesome and his passing accuracy. This is what united want not a sluggish player like felliani,his very dull nd he quickly exhausts in strength. Moyes should make a very nice selection on this match.

    Play kagawa behind Rooney . RVP should sit on the bench. Fellaini is not a United player class. Play nani and Januzaj on the flanks. Carrick and cleverly. Rafa and evra. And last. Jones and evans, they are more solid.
    …………….rooney………….
    Januzaj……kagawa…….nani..
    ,………..carr….clever………………
    Evra…..evans6…jones4….rafa..
    ……….ddg,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
    4231 is the ideal line up. Januzaj, kagawa, rooney and nani attack will be awesome to watch
