FA Cup Third Round
Don't expect this at all but this is a mixture of players I expect to be involved with a few i'd like to see involved... Romero; Darmian, Smalling, Tuanzebe, Shaw; Schweinsteiger, Fosu-Mensah, Fellaini; Mata, Rashford, Rooney.
Who should play instead of Fellaini?
To be completely honest... I'd like to see TFM in the middle of the park. I think long term that's where he will play so it's better to get him games there now?
I know playing him at full back kind of takes away a bit of pressure because it's not as important as CM but I think he's wasted out there.
Fosu-Mensah is in midfield in the team you quoted. There are no other alternatives to Fellaini. Schneiderlin would be an option if he was staying.
I don't really think we have a lot in the way of youngsters ready. Most of our decent prospects are in the academy and not ready.
As Booth said, the young players from the academy are not ready. Chong, the lad from Ajax, just turned 17 in December. He is physically not ready.
And these players will never be ready if you don't give them a chance. And Jose doesn't have a good record of giving players a chance. He could have played TFM today but he didn't. Tuanzebe isn't even on the bench. Sorry but for a club of our traditions that's not good enough.
