Key manchester United midfielder ruled out for the rest of the season

GK – David de Gea

A certain starter. The Spaniard has been the best keeper in the league by a mile. It’s no wonder Real Madrid are chasing his signature.

RB – Antonio Valencia

Albeit not the most reliable defensively; the Ecuadorian has begun to make the position his own. He will have to be at his best to compete with tricky winger Yannick Bolasie.

RCB – Phil Jones

Set to make his return to the starting line-up, Jones has been absent since the victory over neighbours Manchester City.

LCB – Chris Smalling

The England international has impressed in the second half of the season – earning himself a new contract – and looks to finally be settling into the centre-back position for the Red Devils.

LB – Daley Blind

With Luke Shaw, Marcos Rojo and Rafael all out injured, Louis van Gaal is set to be forced to play the midfielder in the defensive position. A huge test for the Netherlands international.
