Manchester United face Arsenal at Old Trafford on Sunday. The Red Devils go into the game knowing a top 4 finish is all but secure, but a win over Arsenal could well see them finish 3rd, and avoid those dodgy Champions League Play-Offs.
Louis van Gaal confirmed yesterday that Wayne Rooney and Luke Shaw will join Michael Carrick, Rafael and Jonny Evans on the sidelines, but said Marcos Rojo could be fit.
The Gunners will be without former United striker Danny Welbeck. His return to Old Trafford in the Premier League, where he started his footballing career, will have to wait.
Here’s the line-up I think LvG will select against Arsenal:
Valencia – Jones – Smalling – Rojo
Herrera – Fellaini
Mata – RVP – Young
United’s injury news means that Rojo could be placed at left back, with Blind covering the defensive midfield. Once again, there’s no place in the side for record signing Angel Di Maria, or Radamel Falcao.
