Which formation and players should Manchester United use in their Premier League match against Swansea City?

Manchester United recalled Will Keane from his loan, but is unlikely to feature against Swansea City, as United look for their first victory in eight matches. Louis van Gaal is under pressure, and still likely to get the sack between now and the summer, but remains in position.

Despite being reported to have two games to save his job with a victory, he oversaw an appalling loss to Stoke City, and a gutless 0-0 draw against Chelsea, who still had chances to win it. Nevertheless, United's display was better, for the first 30 minutes, than it had been recently, and Wayne Rooney was even able to kick the ball. That should see him keep his place as the injury crisis worsens.

David de Gea should keep his place, and the back four of Ashley Young, Chris Smalling, Daley Blind and Matteo Darmian didn't disgrace themselves in the previous match. Morgan Schneiderlin and Bastian Schweinsteiger proved they are the best midfield combination for the side. Memphis was a substitute, and should stay on the bench unless Rooney is canned.

TBB Prediction

Subs: Romero, Jones, Depay, Carrick, Pereira, Fellaini, Borthwick-Jackson.
