Manchester United’s Best XI and formation vs Club Brugge

by Sam Peoples

Sergio Romero If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Right now, that’s all you need to say about Manchester United’s back five, who have been in excellent form all season.

Matto Darmian – So impressive in every game. Long may that consistency continue.

Chris Smalling We much prefer this new Mike Smalling to the old Chris.

Daley Blind Surprised us all by how good he has been at centre-back.

Luke Shaw Keep up the good form Luke.

Michael Carrick Tougher to call the midfield positions. We’ve left Bastian Schweinsteiger on the bench in favour of Carrick. They’ll probably swap.

Morgan Schneiderlin The only guaranteed starter in midfield.

Memphis Depay Won the first leg for United, will he do the same again?

Juan Mata – No other right-winger.

Marouane Fellaini He’ll start to give United a bigger option up front.

Wayne Rooney Blowing cold air at the moment but Louis van Gaal will continue to show faith in him.

Predicted formation – 4-2-3-1. United are away from home in Europe in their Champions League qualifier with a two goal advantage. Is he really going to play expansive from the start? We don’t think so, but let’s hope we’re wrong.
