The Spoiler’s Pick

Manchester Utd team to face Arsenal tonight

As long as Rio remains fit, tonight’s Utd defence pretty much picks itself, while Anderson and Fletcher earn a place on the strength of their performances in the first leg.

The Spoiler’s controversial picks come up front: Rooney is on a yellow and played the whole game against Middlesbrough, so we feel he may start on the bench. Carlos Tevez, of course, is also on a yellow, but he is less likely to go batshit crazy, and arguably, less of a blow to lose for the final. We put the Argentinean ahead of Dimitar Stropotov because he is more able to defend from the front – chase down lost causes, feed off scraps etc. Park makes the cut so he can double-up (DOUBLE TEAM! OH YEAAAH!) on Theo Walcott and Evra.

The team can switch shape to 4-4-2 with Ronaldo up front and Fletcher moving out to the right if needed.

With this food for thought in mind, let us know your selection ideas below…
