Man Utd will look to get back to winning ways when they take on CSKA Moscow in the Champions League tomorrow night.  Here is the side I think Louis van Gaal will pick:

Goalkeeper: David de Gea is certain to start between the sticks with Sergio Romero likely to be his back-up on the bench.

Defence: van Gaal is only likely to make one change to his back four with Phil Jones coming back in for Daley Blind after being rested against Crystal Palace. Chris Smalling will obviously keep his place while Matteo Darmian should continue at right-back with Antonio Valencia out with an ankle injury.

Marcos Rojo will keep his place at left-back with Luke Shaw out for the season with a broken leg.

Midfield:  Morgan Schneiderlin is a doubt after missing training on Monday due to personal reasons so Michael Carrick could come back in alongside Bastian Schweinsteiger in midfield.

Ander Herrera should keep his place with the Spaniard deployed in an attacking midfield role once again.

Attack: Wayne Rooney put in another miserable performance against Palace on Saturday and van Gaal has indicated he’s ready to rest his skipper, but will he do it for a huge European game? I personally doubt it so expect Rooney to continue up front.

This would see Anthony Martial remain on the left-side of attack with Juan Mata likely to keep his place on the right.

Here is how we think United will line-up:

What do you think? What line-up would you like to see start?
