Manchester United predicted XI v Crystal Palace: Robin van Persie to lead attack with Rooney deployed in midfield

Posted by

DM – Ander Herrera

The Spaniard has a formidable engine in midfield, and has proved to be a key player for Manchester United after recovering from his early injury problems. Looks to be the readymade replacement for Michael Carrick.

LW – Ashley Young

The winger has been in fine form under new boss Louis van Gaal, and his excellent delivery will be a huge threat for the Eagles from the left flank.

LAM – Wayne Rooney

The Manchester United captain’s best position is undoubtedly up front, but is likely to drop into midfield to make up for the loss of Michael Carrick – who has been ruled out for the rest of the season through injury. A role the England striker is becoming accustomed to playing.

RAM – Marouane Fellaini

The Belgian has hugely impressed in his second season at Old Trafford, becoming a regular in the starting line-up. A huge presence in the opposing box.

RW – Juan Mata

The playmaker has been the star performer in the second-half of the campaign. His creative spark will be needed on Saturday to help clinch three crucial points in the race for fourth place.
