Will the youngster start at St James’s?

United don’t have an abundance of defenders to choose from at the best of times, but with Jonny Evans and Chris Smalling returning to training, they could find themselves back in the starting line up against Newcastle, while Rafael may also be fit enough and preferred for the league match if Moyes decides Phil Jones is starting in Germany at right back. 

Juan Mata simply has to start against Newcastle as he’s cup tied for the trip to Germany, while Adnan Januzaj should get the chance to have a first start in four games.

Here’s how the Reds could line up against Alan Pardew’s men:

David De Gea, Alexander Buttner, Jonny Evans, Chris Smalling, Rafael, Darren Fletcher, Tom Cleverley, Ashley Young, Juan Mata, Adnan Januzaj, Chicharito.

Do you agree? Feel free to comment below:

    Probably the least important game of the season before undoubtedly the most important game of the season. I think heavy rotation should be implemented. Rafael and Evra should get game time and bench warmers should be given a chance to perform.
    Rafael Smalling Evans Evra
    Fletcher Cleverley
    Januzaj Mata Nani

    U’r right but i tink Moyes wil stil prefers Rafa at d right bk in german.D lad knows Ribery vry wel,and Rafa wil like to maintain his form against him as usual.In addition to dat,Januza wil b instrumental in dat match to course tention in their defence just as Welbeck did tks.

    please note fillani is heavily criticized but for me his dirty work was instrumental to most dispositions of beryan. also i prefer the flair, confidence, energy, reflex, quick return and above all, full concentration of butner in that wing than evra. the rest squad should be repeated especially at the defence. I GIVE UNITED THE GAME BECAUSE THEY WILL DEFEND AND SCORE LATE GOAL THAT WILL ELIMINATE BERYAN. UP UNITED
