Here in the Man Cave, the Man United fans are getting heated over team selections ahead of tonights FA Cup 5th round tie against West Ham United.
Manchester United have rocked a little in recent weeks, many say they have bottled the Premier League title race. It kind of goes in line with being labelled bottlers over a series of semi-final defeats under Ole Gunnar Solksjaer.
However, surely Solskjaer will be wanting to right that wrong and bring in the first trophy under his leadership. They’ll be facing former Man Utd boss David Moyes, who will always want to get one over on his ex-employers. West Ham are in good form as they lie in 6th place, a point behind Liverpool.
It’s always going to be a tough match against the Hammers. However, OGS has to start resting a few players, especially if he wants a strong finish to the season.
Here are two players that must come in to the side tonight…
The Man Utd goalkeeper is itching for first-team minutes, and in the wake of David De Gea’s blunders at weekend, it could be the perfect time to step in and show what he is all about. He’s already replaced Sergio Romero as the back-up and cup ‘keeper, and faired well in his minutes. We all know he is Man United’s future number one. A clean sheet and a solid performance may just edge that future a little closer.
DONNY VAN DE BEEK
Ahhhh, DVB. Man Utd fans are screaming out for the Dutchman to be given the minutes on the pitch. It averagely takes a player 6-8 months to bed into to a new league and country (unless you’re Bruno Fernandes). Van De Beek is on the back end of his probational period and has not really set alight any fires…but how could he?
There seems to be an unknown reason why DVB doesn’t get the nod more often or quicker in a game that is screaming out for his vision and passing guile. However, tonight the former Ajax man should be given the chance especially with Paul Pogba being out injured; It could be his time!
Do you agree with this Man Utd starting 11?
