Tottenham vs. Manchester United: Reds completely unchanged for Spurs clash

New, comments

Louis van Gaal has surprisingly named an identical XI to face Tottenham Hotspur as the team that played against Newcastle just two days ago.

Well, as expected, with Louis van Gaal resting a few players against Newcastle, we come into the Tottenham game with... exactly the same team again, actually.

No resting for us - it's the same as before, with Paddy McNair, Phil Jones and Jonny Evans in defence, Ashley Young and Antonio Valencia on the flanks, Rooney and Mata ahead of Carrick in midfield and Van Persie and Falcao up front. Easy.

In fact, there's only even one change to the subs bench, where Luke Shaw returns to step in should we need him. Andreas Pereira is also on the bench there. Still no Januzaj, Herrera, or Di Maria. Or Fellaini, but we can deal with that.

Manchester United starting lineup: David de Gea; Phil Jones, Paddy McNair, Jonny Evans; Antonio Valencia, Wayne Rooney, MIchael Carrick, Juan Mata, Ashley Young; Robin van Persie, Falcao.

Subs: Anders Lindegaard, Rafael, Chris Smalling, Luke Shaw, Darren Fletcher, James Wilson, Andreas Pereira.
