Your final XI: Formation

All this week we’re asking you to help us pick a starting XI to face Aston Villa in Sunday’s Carling Cup final at Wembley.

Of course, United have a vital league match to contend with on Tuesday against West Ham before the team's thoughts turn to the final, but Sir Alex will no doubt have one eye on Wembley - a game that, should United win, could spur the team on for the run-in.

We want to know who you’d pick in your team as the Reds look to defend the Carling Cup trophy we won dramatically on penalties last year.

Throughout the week in the build-up to the final, we’ll gauge your opinion for selections position by position, but first we want to know which formation you’d go with if you were United boss.

So, get voting in's first poll for the tactics you'd like to see employed at Wembley. Then, come back each day to vote on the players you want to see in defence, midfield and attack.

If you want to discuss tactics and how you’d like to see United approach the game, post your views and debate with fellow fans on the dedicated Talking Reds message board thread.
