Man Utd Preview:
Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney up front makes for a mouth watering partnership, they netted 57 league goals between them last season, if they hit somewhere near their individual targets from last term, United are going to be a formidable force.
Fergie has a lot to think about with regards to injuries, particularly at the back. Nemanja Vidic managed a number of appearances during pre-season and should feature but Rio Ferdinand could miss out due to injury along with Chris Smalling (groin), Jonny Evans (ankle) and Phil Jones (back), so Michael Carrick may be forced to play centre-back.
United will still be strong, they were fantastic on the road last season, picking up thirteen wins, which help them amass the highest points tally by a side in season who failed to win the league. They played better last season than they had in the previous one and we should see a progression forward this time again. They will know the challenge before them in Manchester City and they won
