Manchester United are looking good at this point in time, with Sunderland next up in the Premier League. Van Gaal’s side sit two points off top spot at the moment and a win this weekend will only increase the pressure on local rivals Manchester City.
Team selection is always important, with the manager going strong against Ipswich Town, I don’t see too many changes being made.
David de Gea will obviously keep his spot in between the sticks, with the centre-back pairing of Chris Smalling and Daley Blind in front of him. Matteo Darmian will come back in at right-back, and hopefully Marcos Rojo is fit and able to slot back in at left-back.
The midfield two of Morgan Schneiderlin and Michael Carrick looks extremely strong on paper, with an attacking trio of Memphis Depay, Wayne Rooney and Juan Mata in-behind the in-form Anthony Martial.
