re: 2012-13 English Premier League/Cups Thread (Winning at home is overrated anyways)
Anymore news on Van Persie? Some says he's out and other reports say it's not as serious. I also read that Evra is a doubt, which could give Buttner a chance in the left back spot. Also, the news that Kagawa might not feature seem to be fabricated as Kagawa said in an interview he will be fine for tomorrow's match against Wigan. De Gea
Even if Van Persie is fit, I'd rather save him for the Liverpool game and start Hernandez instead, who looked sharp when he came on against Southampton. Hopefully with the energy Chicharito showed last week will allow him to get a lot of game time now and will give him back some confidence, which can hopefully lead to some goals.
I'm really looking forward to this weekend, getting pissed and seeing what should be (you never know based on the first three United games) a comfortable win against Wigan. This should be the game where we get a cleansheet and a few goals. The team I'd like to see for tomorrow:
Rafael Evans Ferdinand Buttner
Valencia Carrick Scholes Nani
Subs: Anders, Vidic, Giggs, Anderson, Cleverley, Welbeck & Van Persie
I've left Vidic out as I'd like to see how Evans does with Ferdinand again and to renew that solid partnership they had last season. There needs to be competition for the centreback spots what with Ferdinand getting older now and Vidic not looking quite 100% to his best. This could give Evans an opportunity to impress (which he did last season) if he gets a start against Wigan.
Jones out for longer? Urgh. Everything seemed fine over pre-season and as soon as the new Premier League season gets underway, our injuries start occurring. Hopefully Smalling doesn't have a setback.
