5) Wayne Rooney v Radamel Falcao v Robin Van Persie

The first question Louis van Gaal faces is his team selection. United’s results have improved since Rooney’s suspension and the move away from playing all three of his superstar strikers simultaneously.

What will the Dutchman do if all three are fit? Luckily it doesn’t seem likely. Rooney should be available after suspension, although there are rumours that he has picked up another injury. Van Persie should start after scoring the vital goal against Chelsea, but Falcao is unlikely to play, having picked up a knock of his own.
