A tearful goodbye looks imminent at Old Trafford come this summer as present club captain Nemanja Vidic is to leave the Premier League Champions at the end of the season, the centre back announced on Friday. The Serbian however should take his place in the heart of the defence with Chris Smalling, the latter who comes to the starting eleven in place of the injured Johnny Evans. Rafael should start in the right back slot and will be using all his pace to terrorize the Fulham left flank and get into crossing positions early into the game. Patrice Evra will surely start in the left back slot, however Alex Buttner might also be thought upon to be given an outing.
This is probably one match in which Moyes should try to experiment with is setup. Micheal Carrick will start as the anchor man in the middle of the park and if I were David Moyes (which I don’t want to be realistically), I would play a 4-1-3-2 line up against a demoralised and burnout Fulham outfit. Playing Juan Mata in the number ten role carries a lot of thought while Shinji Kagawa should be starting these sort of games. Adanan Januzaj can be played on the right as an inverted winger, using all his pace and trickery to cut inside and crate space for wingbacks overlapping on either flanks.
