    West Brom at home. Just the sort of game we need to get back to winning ways. Hopefully it can set us on a little run until the end of the season.

    They are at home to QPR. Hull is the game in hand they have on us!

    Rooney is probably injured, falcao is shite, so rvp in. Di maria needs to get starts again, young hasn't really played well recently apart from the city game obviously.

    We need to be starting Di Maria again. I also really hope Carrick is available.

    Di Maria did nothing again, so no need for him. Just get Carrick back, and Blind back at LB. Hope either Jones or Rojo is back for McNair.

    Basically play the team we played vs City. As well as Shaw played, he just doesnt link up as well with Young and Fellaini as Blind does.

    The have the blueprint of what to do against us from these last two defeats. 2 defensive midfielders and hit us on the break.

    Need to get back to winning ways. I think it's time for AdM to start as well, these 10/20 minute cameo appearances aren't going to get him back to form.

    I think we need to freshen up a bit, Maybe get Di Maria on for Fellaini and play Mata as #10 behind Rooney. Win this one and we need a draw and a win from 3 games to get top 4.

    They wont do much attacking, we should go for a more adventurous line up. Get Di Maria playing instead of Fellaini.

    Di Maria has to start. Mata gives us that composure in the final third of the pitch especially against small teams. so I'd drop young or Fellaini.

    Expect Pulis to shut up shop just like Chelsea/Everton did, and man mark Fellaini. We will have to be much smarter/braver when taking this mob on.

    Hopefully Jones will be back as we will need 2 quick centre backs available to deal with Berahino/Ideye.

    Hope to god Carrick is back and we can put Blind back to LB, as we played best like that.

    Carrick to come on as a sub in this match, ideally when we are already winning. They will have the same tactics of sitting back so its important our defence is on its toes (smalling + Jones if hes back) and we are patient with the ball not forcing things. We also need to start with a fast pace and incisive passing.

    I think he'll make changes and freshen it up.. Reckon Mata, Fellaini and McNair will be taken out. We've been going great with this system but with Carrick out we have to change the way we play slightly.

    Di Maria provides penetration we lacked through the midfield, and I could see Januzaj brought in as Mata has been subbed early in the last two games. I'm a big fan of Mata but last two games have been subdued. Also an opportunity to get some confidence to other players. Di Maria needs a start to prove himself. 6 in a row on the bench.

    More practice trying to break down a team that defend in numbers. At least this one is at home so I'm more optimistic but we really have to move the ball faster than we did today and the front players need to show more movement to drag players out of position.

    ----------------De Gea-----------
    Valencia---Smalling--Rojo---Blind
    ----------------Carrick------------
    -------Herrera--------Fellaini-----
    -Mata--------Rooney--------Young

    Unfair on Shaw I know but I think we'll benefit far more with Blind's link up play and crossing.

    Thank goodness we have this game next, if it had been arsenal, or Palace away then I'd have been really worried, the perfect game to get us back on track.....Hopefully!

    Anyway if we can't win this we don't deserve top 4, we just have to win.

    Would be cery surprised to see rooney available and at this point even if carrick is ready, he might have been out long enough than LVG won't believe he should start.

    Di maria definitely has to start, and maybe a few other changes should come too. I can see Mata and Young being sacrificed.

    Ah thats right, well Valencia needs to be out for the next game. He is getting worse. Maybe from fatigue.

    I expect a full response. If anything, this might be the result the players and LVG needed to give them a kick up the ass and remind everyone that top four is yet to be secured.

    WBA will be hard to breakdown and they will put 10 men behind the ball, but if we play with some width I expect us to get in behind them. Hopefully RVP is ready to start so he can hold up play and maybe Carrick can get some minutes toward the end.

    3-1 United with WBA to score first.

    If fit, I'd bring in Rojo, Carrick and Di Maria for McNair, Blind and Young.

    Carrick back, Blind to LB please. Blind is still a much better LB then Shaw imo, his attacking skills are just way better, one match doesnt change that.
