United face league leaders Arsenal on Sunday knowing a win is essential to staying in touching distance from the Gunners who are currently eight points clear of the Reds.
United’s start to the season has been the source of much criticism for new boss David Moyes and even bizarrely for Sir Alex Ferguson by some more zealous fans.
A win on Sunday though and all will be forgiven -sort of- for Moyes and United can start what could be the beginning of a proper push for the title we won so easily in the last campaign.
Should United lose on Sunday then the Reds will have it all to do if they’re to stop this season from simply becoming a race for the top four.
Here’s a predicted line up to face an Arsenal side that’s suddenly looking rampant this season:
David De Gea, Rafael, Nemanja Vidic, Jonny Evans, Evra, Michael Carrick, Phil Jones, Nani, Wayne Rooney, Antonio Valencia, Robin Van Persie.
I expect Adnan Januzaj to play some part but probably from the bench- do you agree?
