Manchester United are playing a football match in Newcastle tonight, against the branch of Sports Direct and occasional football team the locals have going on up there. Louis van Gaal has, accordingly, named eleven players to win the match.

They are:

Manchester United starting lineup: David de Gea; Antonio Valencia, Chris Smalling, Jonny Evans, Marcos Rojo; Daley Blind, Ander Herrera; Angel Di Maria, Marouane Fellaini, Ashley Young; Wayne Rooney.

Subs: Anders Lindegaard, Juan Mata, Phil Jones, Adnan Januzaj, Michael Carrick, Paddy McNair, Falcao.

So, one change then as Fellaini comes in for Falcao. There's no place for Januzaj despite his recent good form either, while Michael Carrick is back on the bench. O joy.

Anyway, you know the drill - use the comment thread below to all shout at Di Maria for giving the ball away and cheer Daley Blind's deflected strike to put us 1-0 up in the 60th minute after an hour of rotten football.
