    XI: De Gea, Rafael, Evans, Vidic, Smalling, Buttner, Scholes, Cleverley, Kagawa, Welbeck, Chicharito.

    Subs: Lindegaard, Ferdinand, Valencia, Giggs, Young, Macheda, RvP

    Either Buttner is LW or Rafael is RW. Either way, decent line-up.
    I think we might have Buttner on the wing. It was his original position.

    I would assume they would push Rafael up with Smalling behind as I haven't seen Smalling ever play left back. It's a pretty good team and Smalling/Vidic will be good at dealing with the physicality of West Ham. Also, got some good options on the bench.

    Looks like Rafael at RW is already on SAF's mind

    I just hope Rafael's RW slot doesn't distract him too much of his defensive duties when he does return to RB, especially if him playing RW becomes a regular thing. This season, he's absolutely nailed the balance between attack and defence.

    What a brilliant ball by Scholes to smalling moments ago. Also, brilliant defensive work by Vidic to clear the ball.

      Scholes as the deep lying playmaker. More like a 4-3-1-2.

        Lovely taken finish by Cleverley, opened his body up. Our general play has been good, quick and energetic.

        Could it just be a 442 with Rafael as RM? I'm not watching though...

        Stupid by Scholes

        No idea what Rafael is meant to be doing. Not sure he does either.

          Lovely build up to the goal but it was pretty poor defending to leave Clev on his own.
