4-3-3: Manchester United XI vs FC Midtjylland – Schmidfield start alongside Depay

Manchester United take on Danish cub FC Midtjylland for their first professional meeting in football history this Thursday. Louis van Gaal takes his side to Denmark for the first leg, ahead of the second leg the following week in a tie we should win comfortably.

David de Gea will continue in goal, with the English pairing of Phil Jones and Chris Smalling in front of him. Matteo Darmian will start on the right, with Daley Blind switching to the left.

The ‘Schmidfield’ will finally be reunited in the middle of the field, and they should have more than enough to win that battle. Juan Mata will continue in his favourite #10 spot, with Memphis Depay to his left and Anthony Martial on his right. Wayne Rooney will lead the line due to his excellent form as he closes in on Sir Bobby Charlton’s goalscoring record.
