Second guessing the Gaffer

This is a special post in anticipation of the Sunday game between Manchester United and Liverpool at Anfield. This is my proposed side and strategy.

GK: Edwin van der Sar
CB: John O’Shea, Chris Smalling
RB: Rafael
LB: Evra
Midfield: Luis Nani, Michael Carrick, Darren Fletcher, Ryan Giggs
CF: Wayne Rooney
ST: Dimitar Berbatov
Subs: Fabio, Anders Lindegaard, Gabriel Obertan, Javier Hernandez, Paul Scholes

Let Wayne Rooney drop back to assist the midfield and the weakened defence. Paul Scholes should be substituted in for Fletcher or Carrick either at half time (if the Liverpudlians are leading by a margin of 2 or more) or around 60-65 minutes. Ryan Giggs must be substituted by Gabriel Obertan around the 70th minute while Hernandez may substitute Berbatov around the same time.

Opinions and other ideas are openly invited till matchday, of course.
