Wayne Rooney is dropped to the bench by Van Gaal with Ander Herrera coming into the side. The pressure is on for Louis van Gaal as he hopes to end a run of six league and cup games without a win – the club’s worst run since 1998.
Mark Hughes makes just a single change from the side that suffered a 2-1 defeat by Crystal Palace in their last outing with Geoff Cameron starting in place of Marco van Ginkel.
