Possible Manchester United Starting Line-Up Against Spurs

Share

Manchester United will take on Tottenham at the Old Trafford on the New Years’ Day, looking to extend their winning run to seven games.

After a stuttering start to the season, the Red Devils have bounced back strongly in the league, winning their last four Premier League matches. They have jumped 6th in the table, two points behind Liverpool. The Champions are heading into this tie on the back of a 1-0 victory over Norwich City, where Danny Welbeck scored the winner.

Defence: Moyes will likely to continue with the same back four that earned a victory over Norwich. That means Evans and Vidic will start in the centre-back role while Smalling and Evra will take up right and left back roles respectively.

Midfield: In the midfield, Moyes would hardly want to experiment here and probably will go with Tom Cleverley and Michael Carrick.

Forward: Wayne Rooney is expected to return after missing the last match with a groin injury. Shinji Kagawa and Ashley Young could get a game as well, while Danny Welbeck will start as a lone striker. Good news for the Red Devils is, Robin van Persie could make a return from thigh injury from the bench.

Prediction: 2-1; Spurs won at OT last season in years and they would be hoping for a repeat this season as well. But, United seem to have found their mojo back and expect them to earn full three points.

  1. I EXPECTED UTD TO BRING BACK ALL THERE PLAYERS FOR THIS GAME LIKE MIRACLE RESTED ROONEY RED WITH SUPPLEMENTS BEING SWALLOWED I NOT RIFE IN NORTH WEST.

  2. Man utd should..consider the signing of a top class midfield. Gundogan and Ross Barkley have been heavily linked with the red devils. David moyes need to break the bank to secure the signature of one of them. It should be really business. The top recruits should Include as well attacking midfield reus and a versatile defender to fill the boots of rio Ferdinand. Mangala has also been heavily linked.

  3. United should try with 4-5-1
    welbeck is in form then played him alone upfront and rooney in midfield with carrick,cleverly.januzaj,A.YOUNG in wings.

    Then in second half change it in 4-4-1-1

    kagawa,chicharito joined it attack. Rooney will to everything
