Manchester United have failed to impress in terms of performances, but they have been able to grind out the results. And as long as they are racking up the points, Louis van Gaal will have hardly anything to complain about.
Apart from Robin van Persie, there is no fresh injury news for United. Mata and Falcao will be vying for a starting berth in the line-up.
