PICTURE: Manchester United’s best XI vs Stoke with RvP and Falcao starting

Manchester United are really starting to pick up some momentum after three wins one the bounce and possibly their most impressive victory of the season at the weekend.

United have of course faced tougher opposition than Hull this season. But the keyword here was control. Manchester United had it for almost the entire 90 minutes – and how seldom have we been able to say that over the last 18 months?

The big blow was of course the loss of Di Maria with a hamstring strain. He will most likely be out for the Stoke game – another must win encounter which will cement Manchester United’s position in the top four.

With Ander Herrera putting in one of his best performances for United after coming on for Di Maria and one might assume that he will start on Tuesday night.

Wayne Rooney was the other injury doubt – he took a nasty knock as he crashed into the hoardings at the end of the game – but hopefully the injury was limited to bruising.

And the other big decision for Van Gaal is whether to start Radamel Falcao who now looks desperate for minutes. We would love to see both him and RvP begin the Stoke game. But, to do so, Mata or Herrera must be dropped if Roo is fit.

It’s a minefield of potential selection surprises. But here is our strongest XI – fitness permitting – for the second home game in a few days.

Manchester United fans: let’s have your selections please.
