The Manchester United team is out for their FA Cup fourth round clash with Cambridge this evening, and manager Louis van Gaal is pulling few punches. His team is a strong one -- only Adnan Januzaj and James Wilson would be eye-raising inclusions if this was a Premier League game. The only suprise is that Wayne Rooney and Juan Mata have both been omitted from the squad.
It's anyone's guess which weird and wonderful formation van Gaal is using, but TBB is taking a stab in the dark and predicting a back three comprised of Phil Jones, Marcos Rojo and one of Michael Carrick or Daley Blind. That would mean Januzaj is to be used as a left wing-back, while Ángel Di María drops into a more natural midfield role behind Wilson and Radamel Falcao.
United XI vs Cambridge: De Gea, Jones, Rojo, Blind, Valencia, Carrick, Fellaini, Januzaj, Di Maria, Wilson, Falcao #mufclive— Manchester United (@ManUtd) January 23, 2015
