How should Manchester United line up against Everton?

Which players, formation and tactics should Manchester United use in the Premier League game against Everton?

Bastian Schweinsteiger will be out for some time with a fairly serious knee injury, and he's also joined on the crocks list by Will Keane, Wayne Rooney, Ander Herrera (just a doubt for this game), Phil Jones, Ashley Young and Luke Shaw.

Unfortunately, Marouane Fellaini is fit.

Let's be optimistic though, and assume he'll be on the bench for the game against his former club, and that Louis van Gaal chooses his best line-up. The chances of that are, admittedly, slip, but lets hope that our stopped cock is at least right once today.

The back four might have Guillermo Varela or Antonio Valencia, but it might also have a boiled chicken as a sweeper, so there's little point worrying about what might actually happen. Jesse Lingard might be made to play in goal for penalties only, it's just not worth putting much energy into guessing. Anyway, here's the best side United could put out today.
