Rooney and Van Persie could be fit for Cardiff - pick your Manchester United team

Clive Mason

Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie have trained ahead of the Cardiff City game, leaving Manchester United with a potential wealth of options in the forward positions. But where will Juan Mata fit in?

Manchester United and David Moyes should welcome back Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney to the first team tonight, leaving them with a veritable smorgasbord of attacking options in the wake of the Juan Mata signing.

Ordinarily Solskjaer's return to Old Trafford would be the big story here, but with Mata set to make his debut, the Norwegian will very much be second fiddle, perhaps even less given the welcome return of our strikers. With basically everybody fit except Michael Carrick and Marouane Fellaini (who is, reportedly, not far off, and cannot be entirely rejected for consideration in the attacking midfield role), what's your team going to be for tonight?

Let us know full XI's in the comments, and use the poll to decide on what our new front four is going to look like.


Also a further reminder to sign up on Sporcle and add 'thebusbybabe' for The Busby Babe Sporcle League. We're in talks to have a prize or three to give away for those who come top, so it should be lots of fun.
