4-2-3-1: Manchester United XI vs West Ham – Rooney dropped

Manchester United return to the home comforts of Old Trafford after back-to-back away games in the league. Louis van Gaal’s men go into the weekend sitting third in the Premier League table, and they’ll be looking to improve on that this coming Saturday.

Ahead of the game the manager has plenty of injury concerns and selection dilemmas on his hands, but there are a few players such as Bastian Schweinsteiger, Anthony Martial, David de Gea and Chris Smalling who simply have to start.

Personally I’d like to see Wayne Rooney sit out for a game or two, which will allow Martial to continue up top. Juan Mata will play out on the right hand side with Ashley Young on the left. Memphis Depay will be given a chance in the centre.

Morgan Schneiderlin should come back into the side as a holding midfielder in the place of Michael Carrick, and hopefully Marcos Rojo is fit enough to return from injury.
