Louis Van Gaal has had to do some serious shuffling to compensate for injuries and the shuffle might see Wayne Rooney play as a holding midfielder again.
Manchester United's fortunes seemed to turn around when Robin van Persie got hurt, Louis Van Gaal returned Wayne Rooney to his traditional role as a forward and Michael Carrick got healthy. With Carrick injured again and Daley Blind joining hi on the sidelines with an injury of his own, Louis Van Gaal has indicated that he might be forced to return Rooney to a holding midfield role. For United, this could mean trouble given how ineffective they were when they lined up this way earlier in the season. For fantasy managers, it means trouble because Rooney will likely be getting few chances in attack while also not getting credit for things like clean sheets that holding midfielders get in some formats.
