Daly Blind – So long as Michael Carrick doesn’t partner him, he should be OK in defence.
Chris Smalling – Big call for him to return from injury in this game but we desperately need Smalling to start.
Guillermo Varela – I’m a fan of Varela. He will be up for a big test against Arsenal though.
Morgan Schneiderlin – Morgan needs to step up because this game will be won or lost in midfield.
Ander Herrera – About time for the Spaniard to start really showing the sort of form which made him a fans’ favourite.
Juan Mata – A player like Juan could make all the difference with his sharp passing.
Memphis Depay – The man of the moment after Midtjylland. Can he turn Bellerin inside out? Fans are hoping so.
Jesse Lingard – I don’t think he should start but get the feeling he will. Would rather see Pereira there.
Formation – 4-2-3-1: Schneiderlin will more than likely play in a deeper midfield role alongside Herrera or whoever partners him but it will be a 4-2-3-1 on paper.
