40 years, countless trophies- another start against Spurs?

An eleven match unbeaten run, demolishing Bayer Leverkusen 5-0 in Germany during the last game, you could be forgiven for thinking everything is rosy for David Moyes and Manchester United. Forgive me for being a tad negative but while there are reasons to be cheerful, occupying 6th place in the Premier League after 12 games is hardly cause for celebration. United need to close the seven point gap between ourselves and leaders Arsenal and remind everyone just who the champions are.

Spurs haven’t had the best of times of late under AVB who’d rivalling his mentor Jose Mourinho in the ‘nutty decisions that don’t make any sense whatsoever’ stakes. Leaving Moussa Dembele out against Manchester City was disastrous, while thinking Emmanuel Adebayor was the man to help turn the game around was farcical. United can expect no such favours when we visit White Hart Lane this Sunday as Villas Boas knows he needs a win to silence the critics, so it’s vital we build on the win in Germany and pick as strong a side as possible.

David Moyes could go with the same side that defeated Leverkusen, although unlikely- much depends on whether Robin Van Persie is fully fit, although don’t be surprised if he starts on the bench as the manager opts to ease him back in. Here’s my predicted line up:

David De Gea, Antonio Valencia, Chris Smalling, Jonny Evans, Patrice Evra, Ryan Giggs, Phil Jones, Nani, Shinji Kagawa, Ashley Young, Wayne Rooney.

Do you agree? Let us know your predicted line up:

  5. Fact says:

    Rafael stil injured ? But i dont think giggs wil fit such powerful game but let us see if he can add his experience into game

  6. celestine says:

    yes i think thank lineup will destroy tottenham.come on united.

  7. bee says:

    Sorry, but I have to disagree. Personally, I don’t think Giggs is cut out for these kinds of games anymore. Tottenham like to play a fast paced attacking style of football and I’m afraid Giggs just doesn’t have the legs to keep up anymore. The only reason he did so well in Germany is because the Bayer players gave him a lot of space and didn’t hassle him like players in the EPL do.
    My favoured line up would be: David De Gea, Rafael, N.Vidic, J.Evans, Evra, Valencia, P.Jones,Anderson,Nani,Rooney,RVP.
    Ferdinand is done(i fully blame him 4 d equaliser we conceded against Cardiff) and I don’t understand why Moyes isn’t re-introducing Rafael to the squad. Him and Valencia have a fantastic understanding and he is light-years better than Smalling @ right back. Then of course, if I see either of the Cleverly or Fellaini clowns on the pitch, I’m going to have a fit. Kagawa can come on in the second half IMO.

    For it must be fresh


    Sub coming:
    welbeck or nani(januzaj)

    kagawa will create problem for tottenham as central midfielder.

  9. Kyle darkins says:

    No way should young play. Team should be: de gea, rafael, Evans, vidic, evra, Valencia, nani, jones, giggs, kagawa and rooney

  10. Abdulrahman says:

    De Gea d’ magician and in defence i prefer d’ lite of Evra, Evans, Smalling, Rafeal and in midfield Nani, cleverly, Jones, Valencia in attack Rooney, Welbeck and nothing less than win at white hart lane. We didn’t need new face in the 1st half of the game. In sub: Kagawa for cleverly, Januza for Nani, Hernandez for welbeck.
