Predicted Starting XI: Stoke City v Manchester United

Manchester United go head-to-head with Stoke City in a make or break clash for Louis van Gaal. The Dutch manager has been struggling over the last couple of months, and that all came to fruition during his pre-match press conference, during which he admitted he had no fresh injury concerns.

With that in mind I don’t expect to see much of a different look to the Manchester United team, but there are a couple of changes he can make that will certainly get some fans behind him.

First and foremost is reinstating Ander Herrera back into the starting line-up. The Spaniard is the most creative midfielder we have, and on his day he can tear up opposing defences with his cutting-edge passing.

Next up is another midfielder, Morgan Schneiderlin. The Frenchman enjoys doing the dirty work, and given a fair run in the team he could well nail down that position.

Predicted Starting XI

De Gea; Young, Smalling, Jones, Blind; Schneiderlin, Fellaini, Herrera; Martial, Depay, Rooney.
