Welbeck and Rooney did play well last year, but with some slight changes to Rooney's game to accompany RVP, it should be a last resort. They work with every other striker better than they work with themselves. And thats credit to them. Hernandez/Welbeck against West Ham, from what I saw, was very promising. Frightening pace, Hernandez making good runs and Welbeck everywhere. Hernandez & RVP just ran Wigan down, RVP and Welbeck played very well against Liverpool.
Rooney & RVP is a very logical first choice, and its worked for United earlier in the season, and Hernandez & Rooney were terrific about two years ago. Not sure whats happened since then. But I'm sure they could re-find that fire with Hernandez back in fitness and form.
I'd say if people wanted Rooney & Welbeck on the same field, it should go like.
Welbeck - Rooney - Young/Valencia.
Welbeck back tracking would help Evra tremendously when hes exposed. Every time I've seen Young play for them, hes worked very hard, tries to cover every inch of grass. That being said, Welbeck and Young would render Rooney slightly useless. Could just throw Kagawa in the hole, he'd be more attacking. Many options in United's attack, great fun to watch when it works.
