Manchester United set to hand starting spot to starlet against Stoke

Manchester United made it safely into the fifth round of the FA Cup this weekend, but tonight, attentions turn swiftly back to Premier League action. Louis van Gaal’s men host a Stoke City side who are bang in form, and could prove to be a real threat.

Ahead of that game we’ve been given some early team news, and according to the Sunday World, Manchester United are set to hand Guillermo Varela just his second Premier League start.

The Uruguayan thoroughly impressed against Derby County on Friday night, and that performance is looking likely to be rewarded with another spot in the starting line-up.

Obviously his case to play is made a whole lot easier by plenty of injuries in that area of the field, as at this moment in time, Antonio Valencia, Matteo Darmian and Ashley Young are all injured, meaning we have no senior right-back in the mix at the moment.
