It’s almost here folks. With the Premier League kicking off tomorrow lunchtime with Manchester United facing off against Tottenham, the Football Transfer Tavern is awash with excitement.
And what a game we have to kick things off with big spending United starting their new campaign at home against a Tottenham team that will again harbour ambitions of breaking into the top four under Mauricio Pochettino this term.
United fans will have nightmares when thinking back to how the opening day went last season when Swansea City inflicted a surprise defeat on United in Louis van Gaal’s first Premier League game in charge.
With the likes of Jesse Lingard starting that day, United can call on a whole host of new big name arrivals this time around with the Red Devils having splashed the cash in the transfer market.
With Matteo Darmian, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Morgan Schneiderlin and Sergio Romero having already arrived, many of the tabloids are claiming the Red Devils aren’t finished this summer with Barcelona’s Pedro reportedly coming in to replace the now departed Angel Di Maria.
Add to the fact that they may need another goalkeeper as well as a centre half and United fans are looking forward to the next couple of weeks.
In the meantime, we’ve devised what we believe to be the best Manchester United XI Louis van Gaal can field against Tottenham tomorrow lunchtime.
