Danny Higginbotham believes that Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal should include James Wilson in the starting line-up against Hull City.
The Red Devils will host the Tigers at Old Trafford in the Premier League on Saturday.
United will be favourites to win the encounter, but given their inconsistencies and defensive problems, Hull will certainly have a chance of picking up at least a point.
Former United defender Higginbotham has now had his say on the tactics Van Gaal should deploy, taking to social networking site Twitter to give his opinion.
people saying @ManUtd should stick with 3 at the back against Hull. Don't agree. Hull likely to play with just 1 up top. Wasted man at back— Danny Higginbotham (@Higginbotham05) November 27, 2014
Also would give Wilson a start. Remember his full debut and who it was against. I'm sure that will be going through Van Gaal,s mind— Danny Higginbotham (@Higginbotham05) November 27, 2014
For me the problem at them moment up top for Manchester United is that no one is stretching the game for them to create space for midfield— Danny Higginbotham (@Higginbotham05) November 27, 2014
Wilson made his breakthrough at United last season and has been given his chances from the substitutes’ bench by Van Gaal this campaign.
However, it is unlikely that the 18-year-old will start against Hull, especially as star striker Radamel Falcao appears to have recovered full fitness.
