Manchester United’s best chance of silverware this season certainly comes in the FA Cup, and Louis van Gaal continues his cup campaign tomorrow, against high-flying Championship side Derby County.
Ahead of the game, the Iron Tulip met the media and confirmed the news that Michael Carrick is likely to return to action, which is massive when you consider how low we are in terms of numbers in the middle of the park.
I expect us to go near to full strength for this one, but there should be a chance for a couple of youngsters to get involved. Andreas Pereira may start as the #10, with Paddy McNair also coming into the fold. There is likely to be a start for Memphis Depay too, with Guillermo Varela filling in for Matteo Darmian at right-back.
De Gea; Varela, Smalling, McNair, Blind; Schneiderlin, Carrick; Depay, Pereira, Martial, Rooney.
