Rafael Ferdinand Vidic Evra
Valencia Carrick Cleverley/Scholes Nani
Don't mind who starts out of Cleverley/Scholes, been very impressed with both in pre-season/olympics. Seeing how much better we played with Kagawa in the hole tells me we really don't need RVP, as great a player as he is.
Highly doubt Vida play vs Everton my guess is Evans or Jones at CB agree with rest of the team & Scholes will start alongside Carrick imo.
But Ando & Clev link up play from CM to final 3rd along with Nani; Rooney & Kagawa looks extremely promising, yes only pre season but can see Kagawa just has this un teachable knack of finding/creating space for himself & others that will be of huge benefit to us over course of the season.
Defense was dodgy but was mix & match job but attacking play looks really good. I expect the front 4 of Toni Kagawa Rooney Nani to be used v Everton & all 4 will starting doing some training together as a front 4 until Everton game in preparation for the match.
I'm just glad Ando & Clev looked sharp it would be fantastic if both can stay fit & hit good form during the season (touch wood). It would increase our chances of winning title/s this season if both did imo.
