4-2-3-1: Manchester United XI vs Stoke – Depay & Carrick start

Manchester United Football Club progressed safely through into the fifth round of the FA Cup over the weekend, with a 3-1 victory over Derby. Now attentions turn back to the bread and butter of the Premier League, and Stoke City await.

Louis van Gaal will clearly have to go full strength to put United back on track in the league, but injuries have certainly made that much tougher.

Wayne Rooney will start as the sole striker, with Ander Herrera, Anthony Martial and Memphis Depay in-behind him. Michael Carrick and Morgan Schneiderlin will protect an extremely young looking back four.

Cameron Borthwick-Jackson will start at left-back, with Guillermo Varela continuing at right-back after an excellent performance last time around. Chris Smalling and Daley Blind will start as the back two once again, with David de Gea continuing in goal.
