Confirmed Starting Teams: Manchester United vs West Brom

by Sam Peoples

Manchester United XI vs West Brom: De Gea; Young, Smalling, Blind, Rojo; Carrick, Schweinsteiger; Lingard, Mata, Martial; Rooney.

Subs: Romero, Borthwick-Jackson, Jones, Schneiderlin, Herrera, Pereira, Memphis.

Manchester United have named an unchanged starting XI from the midweek 1-0 victory over CSKA Moscow.

Morgan Schneiderlin does return to the bench and Cameron Borthwick-Jackson becomes the latest Man United academy player to be named on the bench and he’ll enjoy the match-day experience.

It’s great to see Jesse Lingard keeping his place in the starting XI because it’s richly deserved and it will be interesting to see how ex-reds Jonny Evans and Darren Fletcher get on back at Old Trafford.

Today’s a very important game for United because Louis van Gaal knows how bad it is to go into an international break off the back of a loss after what happened away at Arsenal.

United are the favourites today with the home advantage but up against a West Brom side who have made themselves very tough to beat away from home, it’s not going to be an easy game.
