Falcao on the bench, Danny Welbeck starts: Manchester United v Arsenal [Team Sheets]

Louis van Gaal has left Radamel Falcao on the bench for tonight’s FA Cup quarter final against Arsenal at Old Trafford.

Van Gaal has used several formations already this season, and tonight looks like being another unconventional set-up, with Wayne Rooney the only forward named in the starting eleven.

As a result of Jonny Evans spitting ban, Marcos Rojo moves into the partner of defence, partnering Chris Smalling.

As for Arsenal, Wenger has made a surprise change to his starting lineup, and has named Man United old boy Danny Welbeck up front, leaving Olivier Giroud on the bench.

The decision can be interpreted in two ways: Giroud being dropped, or Wenger putting his faith in Welbeck to come back and haunt his old side.

It could be a little bit of Column A, and a little bit from Column B.

Welbeck has been used very sparingly of late, but Wenger will be hoping that putting him in from the start against his old side will have the desired motivational effect.
