How do United cope with Luke Shaw? And is it time for Robin Van Persie to be dropped? talkSPORT takes a look…Here’s how Man United could line up against Hull:GoalkeeperDavid de Gea produced a brilliant first-half stop to deny Jack Wilshere last week which provided the platform for United’s victory at the Emirates. The Spain international will continue between the sticks.DefenceUnited’s defence was dealt a blow early on against Arsenal with Luke Shaw forced off but the much maligned Chris Smalling, Antonio Valencia and Ashley Young all excelled and should retain their places.The absence of Shaw and Rojo means United will probably stick to a three-man defence and Paddy McNair and Tyler Blackett, two of the bright sparks for United so far this season, are both accustomed to the system.MidfieldWith the game against Stoke to follow on Tuesday, Van Gaal may want to manage his squad and it could prompt either Marouane Fellani or Michael Carrick to drop out for Ander Herrera.Alternatively, Herrera and Juan Mata could be saved for the visit of Mark Hughes’ side next week.Angel Di Maria displayed at the Emirates how dangerous he is through the middle and he should continue in that position.AttackVan Persie remains a dilemma and it might be time to take him out of the firing line and Wayne Rooney deserves to start where he is at his most effective alongside rising star James Wilson.Van Gaal confirmed the 18-year-old has been “knocking on the door” and his performances for the Reserves suggest his deserves his opportunity over the misfiring Dutchman.Falcao is also back in contention, but the Colombian will likely start from the bench with a view towards Tuesday’s game.Man United fans, how do you think you’ll line up against Hull?
