Man Utd will look to continue their excellent form when they take on Wolfsburg at Old Trafford on Wednesday night.  Here is the side I think Louis van Gaal will pick:

Goalkeeper: David de Gea is certain to keep his place in goal with Sergio Romero once again on the bench.

Defence: Antonio Valencia didn’t train today so it looks like he could be a major doubt for the game tomorrow. Marcos Rojo is also injured so with Luke Shaw on the sidelines for the foreseeable future, Ashley Young could deputise at left-back.

Matteo Darmian, Chris Smalling and Daley Blind are all expected to retain their places in the back four.

Midfield: Michael Carrick and Ander Herrera both didn’t train today so Morgan Schneiderlin could partner Bastian Schweinsteiger in the middle of midfield after the German was rested for the 3-0 win over Sunderland on Saturday.

Attack: Anthony Martial should retain his place up front after another impressive display at the weekend with Wayne Rooney likely to be deployed in the No.10 role.

van Gaal is unlikely to tinker too much with his attack so Juan Mata and Memphis Depay should keep their places on the wings.

Here is how we think United will line-up:
