TEAM NEWS: United To Line Up 4-2-3-1, Herrera Confirmed To Start

Manchester United will likely go for a 4-2-3-1 formation to try and preserve their 3-1 lead in the Champions League play off against Club Brugge.

It has been rumoured that Ander Herrera will start and in that event, it is likely that Adnan Januzaj will be the one who misses out.

Sergio Romero will continue in goal after David De Gea was left at home and our only suspect in defence is that Antonio Valencia may be given the nod at right back owing to his greater European experience in ties of this magnitude. Marcos Rojo is set to play a friendly against Ajax tomorrow to build his fitness so United’s back four will be as it has been other than the possible switch for Darmian.

Morgan Schneiderlin and Herrera will play – with Mata, Rooney and Depay likely to play up front. That leaves one spot for Michael Carrick, Bastian Schweinsteiger or Marouane Fellaini, and given the Belgian’s contribution last week and the fact that it’s an away game, we expect him to be the player who is given the nod.
