Proper football is back on the agenda for Manchester United fans, and it starts this weekend with the Premier League curtain raiser that is the Community Shield. Jose Mourinho’s side take on champions Leicester, in what is an eagerly anticipated game for all involved.
We’ve taken a look at the probable line-up for the game, and Jose will be looking to go as full strength as possible in this one, and we’ll get a real indicator as to what players he trusts at this early stage.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic will start up front, and he’ll have club captain Wayne Rooney in-behind him. They’ll also be pace to burn on the wings, with Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Anthony Martial getting starts.
The midfield is a tough one. I fancy Jose to go with Morgan Schneiderlin and Ander Herrera this weekend, but don’t be surprised to see Michael Carrick displace one of the pair.
De Gea will start in goal, as will the back four that has played plenty of minutes in pre-season; Luke Shaw, Daley Blind, Eric Bailly and Antonio Valencia.
