The same fixture last season saw teenager James Wilson announce himself to the world of football with a well taken brace against Steve Bruce’s men, as caretaker manager looked on with smug content. This time round it’s slightly different, aren’t simply playing for pride, we have a manager we can all believe in and if Wilson does get the nod, it will arguably be on merit, rather than just ‘giving the youngster’s a chance.’

Robin Van Persie’s lack of form – having just 13 touches against Arsenal, means it would actually be something of a surprise if Wilson wasn’t preferred. Radamel Falcao has been training as has Marcos Rojo and both could return to the fold today.

Luke Shaw is out with a knock he picked up at the while Ander Herrera may have to wait to get the chance that’s been eluding him for several weeks.

Here’s a potential starting XI:

4-3-3: David De Gea, Antonio Valencia, Chris Smalling, Tyler Blackett, Marcos Rojo, Angel Di Maria, Michael Carrick, Marouane Fellaini, Wayne Rooney, Radamel Falcao, James Wilson
