Man United line-up

Never that happy to see Tomkins in midfield but a good idea to rotate the side. Demel and Collins should be fresh at the back while Taylor and Jarvis didn't play for the whole 90 minutes at Spurs. The suspended Noble will be missed though and a newly-promoted side hasn't won at Old Trafford since 2001, when it was Big Sam's Bolton. Not sure if Sam should be saying we'd prefer to play Man United after a European game though, as that gives the players a ready-made excuse. Cole, O'Neil and Maiga are our best options on a thin bench. Can we pull off the seemingly impossible against Van Persie, Rooney and Hernandez? Probably not, I fear, but we live in hope.
