Right back and defensive options are thin: Jones, Smalling, Rojo, Blind and Darmian. Jones' availability is unknown, Smalling could do with a rest and Rojo is nearing a suspension. A new defender in January is required or we rely on square pegs in round holes and youth talents. Young at right back will mean one less attacking option, Januzaj might be recalled.

Never thought I would say this but we need him to get up to pace soon.

Van Gaal:

Antonio Valencia is coming back. He has a week [behind him] so he is much closer to being on the bench, for example, but not to play a match as that's different. I don’t think [any new players will be available] but Valencia is fit enough to be on the bench, but to play 90 minutes, I don’t think so.

Hmm... Not sure what to make of this! On the one hand I think he's better than Darmian. On the other it'll no doubt push Varela back down the pecking order which is extremely unfair on him.
