Manchester United will look to put one foot in the group stages of the Champions League when they take on Club Brugge at Old Trafford tonight. Here is the side I think Louis van Gaal will pick:

Goalkeeper: With David de Gea still languishing on the sidelines amid the uncertainty surrounding his future, Sergio Romero is expected to continue between the sticks tonight.

Defence: van Gaal has played a settled back four in each of their opening two Premier League games and United are yet to concede a goal so I think we’ll see the same defence line-up tonight.

That means Matteo Darmian at right back, Luke Shaw on the left and Daley Blind continuing alongside Chris Smalling in the middle. Phil Jones is out with illness while Marcos Rojo is still lacking match fitness.

Midfield: Michael Carrick is unlikely to start two games in four days so Bastian Schweinsteiger could be set for his full competitive debut in the centre of the park.

Marouane Fellaini is back from suspension but Morgan Schneiderlin is almost certain to keep his place. Ander Herrera could come in for Adnan Januzaj despite the young Belgian grabbing the winner against Aston Villa last time out.

Attack: Wayne Rooney is set to lead the line up front despite his poor showing at Villa Park with Memphis Depay and Juan Mata expected to be deployed alongside him in attack.

Here is how we think United will line-up:
