Manchester United vs Chelsea: Potential starting line-up - No Di Maria and Herrera. Manchester United vs Chelsea is definetly the biggest test yet this season but there are fresh injury concerns and questions about who should step in for the injuries. Angel di Maria and Ander Herrera are the two biggest concerns and it begs the question – how would United line-up if neither is fit and available for selection? Marouane Fellaini is a shoe-in to start against Chelsea after his performance against West Brom on Monday night but with Antonio Valencia also out injured and Van Gaal reluctant to use Darren Fletcher or Anderson, choosing a midfield partner is more difficult. A lack of options could see Louis Van Gaal play Juan Mata in a deeper role which would also allow Adnan Januzaj to play in a more central No.10 position, somewhere fans feel he can thrive rather than out on the wing. As for up front, with Wayne Rooney suspended the duo of Robin Van Persie and Radamel Falcao are unlikely to change. What do you ...
United’s squad suddenly looks remarkably strong Nine players injured was the count, yet among the seven men the manager could name as replacements were Luke Shaw – the world’s highest paid teenager on £100,000 a-week – Adnan Januzaj, who now wears Ryan Giggs’s vaunted No11 – Darren Fletcher, the vice-captain, the time-served Antonio Valencia and Falcao. To be able to throw on a bona fide goal-scoring superstar midway through the second half to finish with a galáctico frontline of Van Persie, Falcao, Rooney and Di María illustrates United’s new and frightening strength in depth.
Ashley Young, Darren Fletcher, Tom Cleverly and Antonio Valencia in midfield for Man United. Just let that sink in.
Player Ratings: Manchester United 0-0 Inter Milan Anders Lindegaard - Didn’t really have any saves to make, but his distribution and first touch was poor in comparison to De Gea’s. 5/10 Phil Jones - Won headers, passed the ball forward well and looked solid. 7/10 Chris Smalling - Tried as the middle centre-back and looked much more comfortable. 7/10 Jonny Evans - Didn’t give the Inter Milan forward line a sniff. Forming an excellent partnership alongside Smalling & Jones. 7/10 Antonio Valencia - Played well as the right-wingback. Ran up and down all day, and put in some decent crosses. 6/10 Darren Fletcher - Bossed the middle of the park which is what you expect from your captain. Scored the winning penalty, too. Man of the Match. 9/10 Ander Herrera - His one touch football was wonderful to watch, and you appreciate just how much ground he covers over ninetey minutes. 8/10 Ashley Young - Did well as the left-wingback. His crossing was on point and he looked threatening. 7/10 Juan Mata - Picked some ...
Manchester United's successful Tour 2014, presented by Aon, continued with a penalty shoot-out victory after Louis Van Gaal's men were held to a goalless draw by Inter Milan. Ashley Young, Javier Hernandez, Tom Cleverley, Shinji Kagawa and Darren Fletcher all converted from the spot to complete a full set of kicks for the Reds – playing in the new blue third kit for the first time – while Marco Andreolli's miss for Inter proved pivotal at the FedEx Field, home of NFL legends Washington Redskins. Van Gaal started with his three senior centre-backs all on the pitch, with Chris Smalling and Phil Jones switching to the middle and right respectively, while Jonny Evans retained the left-sided role in which he began the tour against LA Galaxy. Ashley Young and Antonio Valencia took up the wing-back positions, with Ander Herrera and again-captain Darren Fletcher allowing Juan Mata to support Wayne Rooney and Danny Welbeck. The man who Evans, Jones and Smalling are all striving to replace, Inter's new no.15 Ne ...
Ryan Giggs marked his first match in charge of Manchester United by leaving out David Moyes' two major signings for Saturday's clash against Norwich. Giggs was appointed as interim manager on Tuesday following Moyes' sacking just 10 months after the Scot arrived at Old Trafford. And the 40-year-old immediately dropped Spanish midfielder Juan Mata, who cost a club record £37.1 million from Chelsea in January, as one of six changes to the team beaten 2-0 at Everton in Moyes' final game last weekend. Mata was named on the bench at Old Trafford, but there was no place in the matchday squad for Belgian midfielder Fellaini, who has endured a miserable season following his £25 million move from Everton. Fellaini had been on the bench at Goodison Park, but he was missing as Giggs recalled Nemanja Vidic, Rio Ferdinand, Patrice Evra, Antonio Valencia, Tom Cleverley and Danny Welbeck. Mata, Chris Smalling, Alexander Buttner, Jonny Evans, Nani and Darren Fletcher were the players who made way. Vidic, Ferdinand, Cle ...

International Reds round-up Marouane Fellaini scored for Belgium in a 2-2 draw against Ivory Coast in Brussels to lead our round-up of Manchester United's international players. David Moyes' first major signing for the Reds nodded home a Dries Mertens corner with keeper Mande Sayouba in no man's land in the 17th minute before being replaced at half time. Antonio Valencia's Ecuador staged a remarkable recovery as they won 4-3 against Australia at The Den in London. The skipper saw his side fall 3-0 down but he eventually set up the leveller for Enner Valencia, after the Socceroos were reduced to 10 men. Edison Mendez then snatched a late winner deep into stoppage time following a cross by the United right winger. Darren Fletcher made his Scotland comeback as a second-half substitute, controlling midfield with Scott Brown and helping Gordon Strachan's men record an eye-catching 1-0 success in Poland. Brown notched the winner with 13 minutes remaining. Patrice Evra and Robin Van Persie came face-to-face in P ...
Manchester United have a collection of stars on the verge of the final year of their contracts. Despite clear interest of late from Chelsea, Wayne Rooney looks likely to sign a new deal at Old Trafford worth around £300,000 a week, but David Moyes' potential cull of playing staff mean others face uncertain futures. Antonio Valencia may be handed a short-term extension, Darren Fletcher's status depends on his continued comeback from illness, while Michael Carrick may well be overlooked for a deal due to a downturn in form - with one prospect being early retirement. Tom Cleverley has until November to prove he is worthy of a prolonged stay. Despite the fact he'll be 31 by next summer, Per Mertesacker is likely to be offered a new deal by Arsenal if his current form holds. Mathieu Flamini is in the same boat. Mikel Arteta could be moved on, while Thomas Vermaelen and Abou Diaby are almost certain not to be retained, with the Belgian set to be sold this summer. Napoli are interested. Over at Liverpool, club ...
Manchester United 2 Swansea City 0 Saturday 11 January 2014 Old Trafford | Attendance: 75,035 Manchester United returned to winning ways and avenged last weekend’s FA Cup third round defeat to Swansea City after goals from Antonio Valencia and Danny Welbeck sealed an important 2-0 victory. The Reds started brightly and could have taken an early lead through Nemanja Vidic, who volleyed over from six yards, before the impressive Adnan Januzaj struck the crossbar with a delicious free-kick moments later. With just over half an hour on the clock, a lovely passing move on the edge of Swansea's area led to Darren Fletcher slicing high and wide, before Welbeck dragged another effort wide of goal, missing the first half’s best chance following some neat approach play from Valencia and Rafael. David Moyes didn’t make any changes at the break, though his side returned for the second half with renewed urgency and immediately scored via Valencia, who slotted in at the far post after Shinji Kagawa’s header was ...

Three and easy for Utd Danny Welbeck scored twice as Manchester United eased to a comfortable 3-0 win at Aston Villa. In what was a welcome return to form for United, they claimed their first Premier League win since they beat Arsenal over a month ago. After a bright start from Villa, it was United who went ahead on 15 minutes as Welbeck finished from close range after Adnan Januzaj's header had cannoned back off the post. Just minutes later and Welbeck was on hand to convert his second as he slid home to meet Antonio Valencia's cross. The scoring was completed not long into the second half, and it was another well-worked team goal as Tom Cleverley exchanged passes with Wayne Rooney before firing past Brad Guzan. United were also boosted by the return of Scottish midfielder Darren Fletcher, who made his first league appearance in nearly 12 months when he came on in the second half. David Moyes's side had been staring at a hat-trick of defeats for only the third time in the entire Premier League era. Whils ...
has worried Antonio Valencia by selling star player Darren Fletcher.
Ashley Young, Alex Buutner & Antonio Valencia will all be reviewed in the summer. Darren Fletcher & Paul Scholes may retire
Manchester United - Chelsea Preview: Both sides looking to bounce back from European defeats- The Red Devils will be out for blood after their controversial Champions League exit, while the Blues go to Old Trafford having not scored an FA Cup goal at the ground since 1963 Sir Alex Ferguson is likely to make a number of changes to the side that lost to Real Madrid on Tuesday, with Wayne Rooney – surprisingly dropped against Los Blancos – expected to come back into the starting XI. Don't Miss Chris Smalling has started all of Manchester United’s FA Cup matches this campaign, and could partner Jonny Evans in the centre of defence. Antonio Valencia, Anderson and, hat-trick hero against Norwich, Shinji Kagawa should also all return to the side. Phil Jones (ankle) remains sidelined, while Paul Scholes (knee) is a doubt for the match. Midfield enforcer Darren Fletcher (illness) is out for the remainder of the season. Rafa Benitez left Juan Mata on the bench in the Europa League last 16 match against Steaua ...
Man City v Man Utd (1330 GMT) As United legend Peter Schmeichel predicted earlier, Sir Alex Ferguson does decide to start with David De Gea between the sticks. The Spaniard, who has not played a Premier League game since the 3-2 win at Aston Villa on 10 November, replaces Anders Lindegaard, who is not even on the bench. Youngster Sam Johnstone is the back-up keeper. Ferguson makes two other changes from the side which won 4-3 at Reading last weekend - and they both come in his midfield. Tom Cleverley and Antonio Valencia start ahead of Darren Fletcher and Anderson, who both drop out of United's matchday squad.
Sir Alex Ferguson is confident Man United have the strength in depth to cope with their current injury setbacks ahead of the Manchester derby. Anderson, Nani and Antonio Valencia will all miss Sunday's Etihad Stadium clash through injury while Shinji Kagawa and skipper Nemanja Vidic remain on the sidelines. However, Ferguson is unconcerned by the absentees and is confident in the quality of the players available to him. "I have plenty of experience to bring in. I rested Darren Fletcher against Cluj on Wednesday and just brought him on for the last 10 minutes. "Michael Carrick will be back in. I also have Ashley Young, Wayne Rooney, Robin Van Persie, Danny Welbeck and Javier Hernandez. "That is what big squads allow you to do. You don't have every player every week. Our supporters must recognise that."
"Alex Ferguson will be without Anderson, Antonio Valencia and Nani through injury. Tom Cleverley is almost certainly out with the calf injury he sustained during the Champions League defeat to Cluj. With Shinji Kagawa also still unfit, Ferg uson has Phil Jones, Ryan Giggs or Paul Scholes to start alongside Michael Carrick and Darren Fletcher. It is a far-from-ideal preparation for United as they seek to avenge the misery inflicted upon them in the league by City last season."
I Think, for example, about the midfield options I’ve got. This is an area where some people say we’re weak but I’ve got Darren Fletcher coming back from illness, Tom Cleverley developing as a player, young Nick Powell improving, Anderson back fit and looking terrific, plus Paul Scholes, Michael Carrick and Ryan Giggs. I’ve got heaps of midfield options now."In the wide positions I’ve got Ashley Young fit again, Nani and Antonio Valencia. Then I’ve got the strikers. My area of worry for a long time now has been the back four.Words of Sir Alex.
Reds squad flies to Romania United are taking a 21-man squad to Romania for the Champions League encounter with CFR Cluj.

Manchester United Team News Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson will be in a state of ambivalence regarding squad selection. Wayne Rooney and Darren Fletcher have both made successful returns to first-team action, completing 77 and 90 minutes respectively in the 2-1 home win over Newcastle United in the League Cup on Wednesday. Rooney had been out for a month with a deep cut to his thigh following a nasty but accidental challenge from Hugo Rodallega in the win over Fulham, while Fletcher had not started for United in 10 months before the Newcastle game due to ulcerative colitis, a chronic bowel condition. Both should be available for the Spurs game, and considering their impact against Newcastle on Wednesday, the duo could be important players for the Red Devils on Saturday. However, it's not all good news for Manchester United, with both Nemanja Vidic and Antonio Valencia ruled out for the foreseeable future (h/t Daily Mail). Vidic has been ruled out for two months having been plagued by complica ...
