Man Utd fans split on Memphis Depay recall
Memphis Depay was dropped by Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal from last Saturday's game against Everton - and fans are divided on whether he should now be recalled for tonight's Champions League clash against CSKA Moscow.
Depay has been a star turn for United in the Champions League so far this season, but his army of supporters at Old Trafford appear to be content to see him perched on the bench as Van Gaal looks to find a balance in his team.
United face a crucial game against local rivals Manchester City on Sunday and the question over whether Van Gaal could consider resting star players was also on our agenda.
We asked United fans the following question on Twitter:
Should Memphis Depay be recalled tonight and can Man Utd risk resting players ahead of City game on Sunday?
Here are a selection of the responses:
@kpsundayworld A defeat before the crucial derby would be bad for the team morale. So I expect a strong squad. And Depay playing why not...— Arnab Chattaraj (@pochu_mufc) October 21, 2015
@kpsundayworld Carrick in for Schweinsteiger & Memphis in for Martial should be the only changes. Very early in the season no need to rest.— Man United Man (@Man_United_Man_) October 21, 2015
@kpsundayworld Rooney has been off the pace, looks exhausted and we could do with the pace injection up top. Depay, Martial a must for me(2)— Damien_LDN (@KomboeYoungz) October 21, 2015
@kpsundayworld Depay should play. He might be adjusting to PL but he has so far come good in CL given his goal scoring record.— Jason Celovsky (@camc331049) October 21, 2015
@kpsundayworld I'd like to see Smalling, Martial and Schweinsteger rested. I just don't think we can afford to.— Ben (@_taylorben) October 21, 2015
@kpsundayworld absolutely... Game against city is more important....depay shud play tonight...— dhruv pandya (@dhruv_reddevil) October 21, 2015
@kpsundayworld I think he should be recalled, just so that Martial has a good rest ahead of the derby— Mohamed Al-Mudaifa (@mohd_mudaifa) October 21, 2015
@kpsundayworld I think Depay should be recalled tonight... he is having a good run in the UCL.. Martial should be rested...— Gichane Kamau (@ShemGich) October 21, 2015
@kpsundayworld yes he should.Resting it's a tough one. Players like Smalling need rest but hes become so vital to our team he's undroppable— Darren (@darren_manutd) October 21, 2015
@kpsundayworld l think recalling him is best so he doesn't play him on sunday— [email protected] (@jjamamoo) October 21, 2015
@kpsundayworld should play the strongest side. City game is not a must win compared to risking progress to round of 16— luap xela (@alexpaulk) October 21, 2015
@kpsundayworld Depay starts today. He is a reserve— Baestroll (@Beastroll) October 21, 2015
