With the pair looking fluent together, does this show the way forward for manager Louis van Gaal. The 63-year-old has looked unsure as to his best starting XI all season, so who should he be playing?

GK) David De Gea

Fairly obvious here, the Spaniard has been in amazing form throughout the campaign.

RB) Antonio Valencia

Despite his mistake against Arsenal last week, the Ecuadorian is a better option than Rafael in the role. However, this might be an area they look to improve in the summer.

LB) Luke Shaw

The youngster isn’t the finished article by any measure, but the only way he will improve is by playing.

CB) Marcos Rojo

Even though he has been held back by injuries since arriving in the summer, the 24-year-old has quickly become the best centre-back at the club.

CB) Phil Jones

He may be a bit agricultural, but without many other options at the club the England international could be the best bet.
