United cannot afford to drop points against a side it’s almost been taken for granted won’t make the top four, the problem is a win today for the North Londoners and not only does it throw another team into the mix for Champions League places, it severely damages the Reds chances- not to mention morale.
The knives are already out for Van Gaal by many Reds and if he is to silence the critics then a win against a side that even with the free scoring Harry Kane are very beatable is the perfect answer.
Here’s how the Reds could line up:
[ 4-3-3] David De Gea, Antonio Valencia, Phil Jones, Marcos Rojo, Luke Shaw, Michael Carrick, Daley Blind, Ander Herrera, Wayne Rooney, Adnan Januzaj, Radamel Falcao.
Do you agree?
