van Gaal Makes 2 Changes: Predicted Man Utd Starting Line-Up vs Everton
Top-four chasing Manchester United take on Everton at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon. Here is the side I think van Gaal will pick for the big game.
Manchester United will be looking to give their top four hopes a major boost when they take on Everton at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon. Here is the side I think van Gaal will pick:
Goalkeeper: David de Gea is certain keep his place in goal with Sergio Romero once again among the substitutes.
Defence: van Gaal is likely to stick with the same back four that kept out Manchester City during the 1-0 win at the Etihad before the international break meaning Matteo Darmian, Chris Smalling, Daley Blind and Marcos Rojo all keep their places at the back.
Luke Shaw is due back in light training next week as he looks to recover from a broken leg but he remains unavailable for selection along with Phil Jones.
Midfield: Bastian Schweinsteiger is expected to miss the rest of the season after suffering a knee injury while away on international duty with the German national team.
Michael Carrick is likely to keep his place in the middle of the park and he could be joined by Marouane Fellaini as van Gaal may opt to start the fit-again Belgian against his former club at the expense of Morgan Schneiderlin.
Attack: Ander Herrera is pushing for a recall after recovering from a groin injury but this game may come too soon so Juan Mata should keep his place in the ‘hole’ behind the striker.
Memphis Depay could get a recall in attack while Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford should keep their places as Wayne Rooney remains unavailable due to a knee injury – although the skipper is set to step-up his recovery next week.
Here is how we think United will line-up:
