Which players, tactics and formation will Louis van Gaal use for Manchester United's match against West Ham in the FA Cup?

Cameron Borthwick-Jackson, Ashley Young, Phil Jones, Luke Shaw, Wayne Rooney and Will Keane are still out with injuries, so will not feature.

Honestly, I've no confidence in how Louis van Gaal will send out the players today, so I've decided to go with what I think the most depressing choice of players will be, and gone with that, because that's the kind of thing we can expect from Van Gaal. There's no room for hope anymore.

The calamitous Marouane Fellaini and the slow-motion Michael Carrick in midfield. Marcus Rashford dropped for performing badly as an auxiliary right-winger. Memphis back so he can be subbed at half-time, and Juan Mata to captain the side when Carrick gets injured after 20 minutes. Daley Blind and Marcos Rojo in the wrong positions, and Matteo Darmian back ahead of Guillermo Varela because there's no point expecting any kind of consistency.

Doom.
