Manchester United vs PSV: Predicted XI and Formation

by Sam Peoples

David de Gea Never want to see Sergio Romero again in goal for Manchester United unless David de Gea is unavailable.

Matteo Darmian – Should be starting here.

Chris Smalling – The defensive powerhouse. Can he keep it up against PSV?

Daley Blind – Think he’s the best option to partner Smalling with Phil Jones out injured.

Marcos Rojo – He’ll need to be disciplined down the flank because CSKA Moscow exposed his weakness.

Morgan Schneiderlin – One of our first names on any team-sheet.

Marouane Fellaini – With so many injuries and concerns, playing Fellaini ahead of Schneiderlin in a midfield trio could work.

Jesse Lingard – My man-of-the-moment right now – love how direct and aggressive he is.

Memphis Depay Van Gaal always play players against their old team-mates.

Juan Mata – Was a toss-up about whether Mata should be in the starting XI simply because of his lack of pac.e

Anthony Martial – Would be great to have him back and much needed.

Formation: 4-3-3 – This is a tough formation to choose because of the lack of central midfielders who are available but that could see van Gaal push Schneiderlin into a defensive midfield role.
