Possible Manchester United Starting Line-Up Against Cardiff

Share

Manchester United will take on Cardiff City on Tuesday night at the Old Trafford, where record signing Juan Mata could make his debut for the home side.

The Red Devils have had a poor start to the season and are languishing in 7th place in the league, 6 points off the 4th position, but with Juan Mata in the side, United will push hard with renewed optimism for the Champions League places.

Further, United will be terribly boosted by the return of Wayne Rooney, Robin van Persie and Fellaini, with Moyes claiming all three are expected to play some part on Tuesday night.

In the defence, Vidic is still suspended and Rio Ferdinand still to recover fully, which means Moyes will have to go with Jones/Smalling and Evans at the back.

In the midfield, Michael Carrick is doubtful; therefore expect Tom Cleverley to partner Darren Fletcher.

Danny Welbeck will start as a lone striker (Van Persie can come on as sub later on) with Januzaj, Rooney and Mata supporting him from behind.

Prediction: 2-1; United cannot afford to drop any more points from here on. With Mata in the side, expect a strong reaction from the Champions.

  5. I wll like 4-4-2 formation with d arrival of juan mata @ d club

  6. de gea, jones, evans, rafuel, evra, cleveley flechter, januzaj, mata behind rooney, rvp

  7. Man utd should use 4-3-2-1 formation doulbe atacking…de gea…..rafael smalling evans evra……jones fletchert valencia……mata rooney…..wellbeck….

  8. 4.4.2 could work better with da presence of mata as attacking midfielder then janujaz n valencia on wings.

  9. To hell with welbeck on our line up, chicharito better than in all aspect, that is why no club have ever bid for him big flop

  10. i would go for
    _________de gea________
    ____smaling__evans____
    rafael evra
    ___fletcher___jones___
    januzaj_mata_kagawa
    ________rooney________

    then later we can have van persie in for one of the creative three behind rooney.

  11. I would propose a 4-4-2 formation with mata behind rvp and rooney

  12. Yes, I think We should go back to 4-4-2 formation with Rooney and Chicharito up front like in 2011 season

  13. degea Rafael evra smalling evans jones flechter mata januzaj rooney rvp

  14. 4-4-2 formation will be preferable…..degea,evans,smallin,rapheal,evra,jones,fletcher,rooney,mata,janujaz,van percie,substitution,valencia for janujaz,fellaini for fletcher and chicharito for vanpercie.

  15. I think instead of welbeck,it would have been better if chicharito could have started.

  16. A 4-4-2 or 4-1-4-1 formation cn work with the likes of mata

  17. de gea rafeal jones evans evra tom kagawa mata rooney rvp januzaj

  18. 4:4:2 best for man united

  19. Mata alone ain’t enough for our success

  20. Mata alone ain’t enough for. our success

  21. De gea______rafeal,smalling,evans evra_______fletcher,jones januzaj kagawa _______rooney welback. Mata will come from the bench and RVP. Mata will replace kagawa and RVP will replace welback
