Confirmed Starting XI: Valencia vs Man United – Pereira starts

Manchester United take on Valencia CF this evening, in a game that is somewhat of a dead-rubber as the Champions League Group B is already pretty much set.

The game itself is still one that’ll fit Red Devils fans with intrigue, as Jose Mourinho has named a line-up with a fair few changes

This is a good time to give several players their chances to impress, because there is very little pressure on the game, and it gives these lads an opportunity to force their way into Mourinho’s plans on a regular basis.

Sergio Romero starts in goal, with Antonio Valencia playing at right-back, while Marcos Rojo is seemingly as left-back in the absence of Luke Shaw who is still seemingly injured. Phil Jones starts at the heart of the back four, while Eric Bailly also gets the nod.

Marouane Fellaini didn’t play at the weekend so he’ll play, as will Paul Pogba, who has struggled to play consistent football this season. Fred gets a rare start, and no doubt he’ll be looking to show what he can do.

Juan Mata will start, presumably on the right-wing, while Andreas Pereira looks like he will be playing off the left. Romelu Lukaku leads the line, giving Marcus Rashford a well-earned rest.
