A week or more without the Premier League seemed like an eternity, but the players were in fine form. A 3 - 1 victory that proved to be vital in the closing stages of the season. Fresh from the huge win at Anfield, thanks to a brace from Mata, hopes of a Champions League spot have been reassured. Another Spaniard that proved to be vital was Ander Herrera.

A not so much heard of player until last season, is slowly becoming a star at Old Trafford. Emulating Paul Scholes is what he wants to do and that exactly is what he's doing. Rooney with another magnificent goal with a classy first touch was what sealed the game.

Di Maria reaches 10 assists, the second highest in the league, which by his standards is nothing, but given that he's having a bad season is not bad at all.

Next up is City, but this time at home. Last time we met this season, we were close to winning if not for the red card. We were pressing a lot and made a lot of chances. But that was a long time ago and now LvG has found the team he was looking for. 7 games remain and anything could happen!

It looks like Angel Di Maria is poised to play as striker yet again in the FA cup tie with Cambridge United and with van Gaal backing his decision:
"He played in the 4-4-2 in the left midfield position, but in the 3-5-2 he does not play so much because he has been injured,"

"Then he came back and I tried him as a striker because we also need pace in that position. We have to stretch the pitch - that is an important aspect of a striker, that he can stretch the pitch. Then you make the pitch bigger and your midfielders can play in a bigger space and play a better positional game than ever.

"So I tried that - I had to try it because I didn't have the preparation at the beginning of the season [Di Maria joined in late August]."

With respect to this, here's my predicted XI:
