PICTURE: Potential Man Utd 4-4-2 diamond vs Southampton – Fellaini starts

Manchester United host Southampton on Saturday, with the first-team squad looking in better shape than ever before in terms of injuries. Several first-team players could make their return, and I’d argue that the XI below is probably the strongest one available when everyone is fit.

David de Gea is a shoe-in to start in goal despite the signing of Victor Valdes, with Marcos Rojo also returning from injury and partnering Phil Jones in the heart of defence. Both wing backs are rated as 50/50 after suffering injuries last time out, but both should be able to start.

Michael Carrick continues in the holding midfielder role, with the duo of Marouane Fellaini and Angel di Maria in front of him. Further up the pitch still is Wayne Rooney, who’ll play in the #10 spot.

The two strikers pick themselves despite not being in the best of form. You always expect a goal from these two, and with Falcao slowly but surely returning to match fitness, you feel he has a lot to offer from now until the end of the season.
