GK: David de Gea
David de Gea was left out of the Tottenham Hotspur starting lineup, so he should return in goal for United. That will mean a continuation of Sir Alex Ferguson's policy of not picking a No. 1 goalkeeper.
LB: Patrice Evra
Patrice Evra's form has suffered over the last two seasons, but the Frenchman still talks the talk. Speaking to media about United's performance against Spurs, he said (via Metro):
I think the problem is about our head. In the first 45 minutes there was no speed, no focus and we didn't win many challenges. And then we conceded some silly goals.
Let's hope CFR Cluj will be the start of better performances.
RB: Rafael da Silva
United are not exactly spoiled for choice. Rafael to start.
CB: Jonny Evans
It was recently revealed that Nemanja Vidic would be out of the team for eight weeks in order to recover from knee surgery (via BBC Sport).
In his absence, Evans is the obvious choice to take his place.
CB: Rio Ferdinand
With Chris Smalling and Phil Jones out with injury, and Scott Wootton still very inexperienced, Rio Ferdinand is unlikely to be rested for this one.
