Manchester United have a huge task on their hands if they are to progress into the Champions League last eight. Being 2-0 down from the first leg, going away from home, is borderline impossible.
Things have gone from bad to worse in terms of injuries and no doubt they’ll be several youngsters aboard the plane to Paris; all of whom will be patiently waiting for their opportunity. With Paul Pogba also suspended, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has a real job on his hands.
Anyway, let’s delve right into the starting line-up, and this one was extremely difficult to come up with…
David de Gea will start in goal and no doubt Kylian Mbappe and company will cerainly keep him busy. Ahead of him, Victor Lindelof and Chris Smalling simply have to play. Captain Ashley Young will play on the right while Luke Shaw starts opposite him.
Scott McTominay has done a super job sitting at the base of the midfield and it’d be foolish to move him away from that spot. Just ahead of him, Fred will play, while Andreas Pereira will be brimming with confidence after his stellar display last time out.
Romelu Lukaku has to lead the line after that brilliant brace against Southampton. Marcus Rashford will start on the left-hand side of the attack, with young Diogo Dalot playing over on the right.
