van Gaal Makes 2 Changes: Predicted Man Utd Starting XI vs Wolfsburg

By on December 7, 2015


Man Utd will look secure qualification to the knockout stages of the Champions League when they face Wolfsburg on Tuesday night.  Here is the side I think van Gaal will pick:

Goalkeeper: David de Gea is certain to start between the sticks once again tomorrow night.

Defence: Phil Jones is still out with a foot problem while Marcos Rojo is ruled out with a shoulder injury so the duo join Antonio Valencia and Luke Shaw on the sidelines.

Paddy McNair should keep his place alongside Chris Smalling at the back with Matteo Darmian likely to remain at right-back ahead of Ashley Young. Daley Blind will continue at left-back.

Midfield: Morgan Schneiderlin has failed to make the trip to Germany after being forced off against West Ham on Saturday with a hip problem. Therefore, Michael Carrick should start alongside Bastian Schweinsteiger in the middle of the park.

Attack: Wayne Rooney has once again been ruled out with an ankle injury that saw him miss the draw with West Ham at the weekend so Anthony Martial should lead the line up front.

Ander herrera is also still out with a hamstring injury so Marouane Fellaini could keep his place and Juan Mata should once again start on the right. However, Memphis Depay could be set for a recall in place of Jesse Lingard.

Here is how we think United will line-up:
