Predicted Manchester United line-up to play Derby: Depay and Borthwick-Jackson to start

Old Trafford 3

Here is how we predict Manchester United will line up for their match against Derby County:

Manchester United travel to the iPro Stadium on Friday evening for a FA Cup fourth round clash against Derby County, in a match that could be a giant-killing in the making.

United have struggled for much of this season and their 1-0 defeat against Southampton last time out was followed by arguably the biggest show of frustration among the Old Trafford fans so far.

But despite the boos off the field and the lack of goals on it, Louis van Gaal remains in charge as he bids to get a much-needed win under his belt.

United defeated Sheffield United 1-0 in the last round but that took a late Wayne Rooney penalty to calm the nerves and van Gaal is likely to play a strong side against the Rams in a bid to stave off more unwanted pressure.

In early team news, United are without Phil Jones, Marco Rojo, Antonio Valencia, Luke Shaw, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Ashley Young and Nick Powell.

Van Gaal also has minor doubts regarding Michael Carrick and Matteo Darmian but both are tipped to be fit.

With all that in mind here is how we expect United to line-up on Friday evening:

Manchester United starting XI: De Gea, Darmian, Smalling, Blind, Borthwick-Jackson, Carrick, Herrera, Schneiderlin, Depay, Januzaj, Rooney
