They have a very good record at home so it will be a tough one but we're still unbeaten and if we give another Chelsea type performance we win. I think given the injuries, the extra time the either night and City in the week Jose will have to rotate.
Maybe something like:
De Gea Bailly - Blind - Darmian Young - Herrera - Pogba - Shaw Rooney Lingard - Martial
Rashford could well start again but with the derby coming up it might be better to keep him fresh.
There was talk about playing Tuanzebe further up the pitch.
still, not a bad lineup regardless, surprised to see no Blind in the back but glad to see Jose is giving youth a chance aside from Rashford (got worried).
Hopefully Fosu-Mensah gets a chance to shine. Also this is a BIG opportunity for Martial, with Ibra out, he needs to stake his claim in the striker race (or at least get a run on the wing).
On the game itself, we should win this easily, the team shouldn't need the extra motivation but we need to win these games especially and then against the big teams we face in the league, at least our fate is in our hands.
In my opinion the delay in this week 26 game to now slightly favours United. We would probably have been the losers in February but now with our improvement of late I fancy a hard won draw is on the cards, a win what a bonus !
