Cambridge United v Manchester United: Live team sheet

Published 2 Comments

Football News

Can Cambridge cause the upset of all upsets this evening by defeating the mighty Manchester United? That question - and many more - will be answered by 10pm this evening.

MK Dons famously beat the Red Devils in the Capital One Cup earlier this season, but victory for the League Two outfit this evening would rank as an even bigger shock.

United fans have been trying to predict Louis van Gaal’s starting line-up all week, while asking each other questions such as: will Van Gaal stick to his increasingly unpopular 3-5-2 formation? Can Radamel Falcao score against a League Two side? And will Victor Valdes make his Manchester United debut?

Starting line-ups

Two of those questions have now been answered. Here’s how the team teams line-up.

Cambridge United: Dunn, Tait, Taylor, Coulson, Donaldson, Champion, Elliott, Hughes, Nelson, Raikai, McGeehan, Kaikai.

Subs: Norris, Miller, Dunk, Simpson, Ball, Chadwick, Bird.

Manchester United: De Gea, Jones, Rojo, Blind, Valencia, Carrick, Fellaini, Januzaj, Di Maria, Wilson, Falcao.

Subs: Valdes, McNair, Rafael, Shaw, Fletcher, Herrera, van Persie.


Victor Valdes is named amongst the substitutes, but Adnan Januzaj is handed a rare start to impress.

James Wilson and Radamel Falcao start in attack, while Wayne Rooney is rested. Robin van Persie is also on the bench.
