Antonio Valencia returns for Manchester United

New, comment

Louis van Gaal makes just the one change from the FA Cup semi-final.

Louis van Gaal has resisted the urge to tinker too strongly with the team that overcame Everton at Wembley last Sunday, and has made just one change to his starting line-up. That comes in defence, where Antonio Valencia replaces Timothy Fosu-Mensah at right-back. He'll be defending alongside Chris Smalling and Daley Blind, all three of whom will be gazing in confusion at Marcos Rojo on the left.

David de Gea is in goal. Make the most of it while you can.

In midfield, Michael Carrick and Marouane Fellaini continue their work as the Axis of Not Very Fast. In this they will be assisted by Wayne Rooney, captain of both the team and our hearts. Out wide, Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard will run up and down the flanks, while Marcus Rashford continues as the lone striker. Be good if he did a goal, we reckon. That's analysis.

On the bench: Sergio Romero, Matteo Darmian, Fosu-Mensah, Ander Herrera, Juan Mata, Morgan Schneiderlin, and Memphis Depay, who may or may not have had some kind of social media-related strop this morning. We'd check, but we don't care.
