With Robin Van Persie still out through injury, Moyes would be hoping he has Wayne Rooney at least fit in a race against time for Saturday’s encounter. Rooney will play as a second striker and have to play deep and drop in behind the defence to make space and provide those killer balls up front for the striker up front. Talking of strikers, Danny Welbeck will perhaps get the not ahead of Mexican Javier Hernandez. However Chicarito might pair up with Welbeck in a typical United 4-4-2 formation if Rooney isn’t fit. Even Kagawa can play as no 10 behind the striker in the absence of Rooney. Whole United’s attacking lineup depends on Rooney’s fitness now.
