- No new injuries could mean an unchanged lineup for Sunderland as they welcome Manchester United to the Stadium of Light.
- Jordi Gómez could be hoping for a starting berth after coming off the bench last time out.
- Robin van Persie is expected to play a part for Manchester United here as they have no time to waste in waiting for him to regain match fitness and sharpness.
- Marouane Fellaini is the latest casualty to be added to United’s lengthy injury list, ruled out for an undetermined amount of time while the club await results of a scan on his foot.
Whether Van Gaal can mastermind a win for his out-of-sorts Manchester United side remains to be seen, and Gus Poyet could well see an opportunity to heap further misery on United. This one could end in another stalemate as Van Gaal continues to mould his squad and waits for his many injured players to return.
I predict that at the end of the match, the score line could be 2:2 draw.
