Fantasy5live Three to Watch:
Danny Welbeck: The arrival of Robin Van Persie looks set to push Welbeck down the pecking order however with the Dutch striker set to start tonight’s game on the bench Welbeck will start up front alongside Wayne Rooney. The England striker is set to be offered a new four year deal at Old Trafford and he will be looking to build on last season’s tally of 13 goals and 5 assists.
Nikica Jelavic: Had an impressive second half to the season following his arrival at Goodison Park from Rangers last January. The Croatian striker scored 9 goals in 12 games in the league with a further two goals in the FA Cup. The 26 year old was tipped to be a star at Euro 2012 and while he was overshadowed by the performances of Mario Mandzukic he still managed to score against Ireland.
Shinji Kagawa: The man tasked with being the creative force in the United midfield Kagawa has looked impressive in pre season. The Japanese International scored 17 goals and had 10 assists for previous side Borussia Dortmund last season and if can build on that then United fan won’t be short on entertainment this season.
