Man Utd Official Lineup against Stoke,Rooney finally dropped


Manchester United start off the Boxing day fixture with an early kick off away to Stoke. Louis Van Gaal is under enormous pressure to win at the Brittannia. Although his team selection is limited by injuries especially the defence, on paper at least this United team should comfortably beat Stoke.

Captain Rooney is dropped and fan favorite Ander Herrera is starting. This is the first time Van Gaal actually has dropped Wayne Rooney. But United ‘s center midfield combination is a big worry with Fellaini-Carrick double pivot not exactly inspiring confidence.

Also,the way United play will be crucial,another 90 minutes of snooze-fest will only hamper Van Gaals’s chance of seeing out his contract. United fans have been very patient so far as the style of football has been quite boring and the results have been poor. David Moyes has in fact a higher win percentage than Van Gaal for Manchester United in the league at the moment.
