Manchester United vs FC Zorya: Potential XI with Memphis and Rooney

by Sam Peoples

Having listened to a few comments from you on what team you’d like to see Manchester United play against FC Zorya, here’s our final potential XI ahead of our predicted XI video on Wednesday.

As you can see, there’s a new look attack with Wayne Rooney in his natural role as a striker in front of Henrikh Mkhitaryan occupying the No.10 role, with Memphis Depay and Jesse Lingard on the wings.

I really like the look of this team to be fair:

The only way we’re going to truly get the most out of Rooney is by using him in his natural position as a striker which is what this formation allows. It also gives a much needed rest to Marcus Rashford and Zlatan Ibrahimovic who are both ahead of him in the pecking order.

Having Memphis Depay and Jesse Lingard on the wings also gives vital minutes to players who are really in need of them which is what the Europa League is all about at the group stage, other than winning of course.
