Defensive Midfielder: Phil Jones
Phil Jones is in need of some games and he can inject some life into the midfield that was so underwhelming against Fulham on Monday. Although a defender, Phil Jones does quite a good job providing a shield for the defenders, and is also great at going forwards.
Attacking Midfielder Center: Wayne Rooney
I am going to go with a bold prediction and put Wayne Rooney in a deeper role as an attacking central midfielder. He is quite effective at the role and will allow for Javier Hernandez and Danny Welbeck to play together.
This of course means no playing time for either Tom Cleverly or Paul Pogba. But I think Rooney might be allowed to rest after the first 60 minutes or so.
Attacking Midfielder Left: Ashley Young
Expect Ashley Young to operate on the left flank and make incisive passes towards the center.
Attacking Midfielder Right: Antonio Valencia
Valencia has been one of United's best players, and he will surely start. He has established himself as one of the best right wingers in the league and will be a tremendous presence again in the game against Blackburn. He will also free up Rafael to make marauding runs alongside him.
