Manchester United could name an entire team of injured players…
Everyone connected with Manchester United have understandably been bemoaning their current injury concerns. Indeed, United could name an entire team of injured players. But if they did, would that XI be able to beat their current side upon returning to full fitness?
An intriguing concept admittedly, but here is a comparison of the two teams by position – which would you prefer to play Arsenal?
GK) David De Gea (available team) vs Victor Valdes (injured team)
Okay, we’ve been a bit cheeky straight off the bat by including Valdes, but we needed a goalkeeper to make this work, and the deal does look all but done.
Who would you choose? Our ratings – De Gea: 9/10 Valdes: 7/10
RB) Antonio Valencia vs Rafael
A close choice this one, Rafael is the more established full-back, but Valencia has done well in his absence so far this season.
Who would you choose? Our ratings – Valencia: 7/10 Rafael: 7/10
