Predicted Starting XI: Manchester United vs Sheffield United

Manchester United’s FA Cup campaign gets underway tomorrow, with Louis van Gaal’s side playing host to League One opponents; Sheffield United. The Blades have always been a good cup side, so the manager will have to pick a team who are suitably prepared.

I expect to see a team that has a blend of youth and experience, starting with a rare appearance for Sergio Romero. In front of him will be a back four of Paddy McNair, Phil Jones, Guillermo Varela and Matteo Darmian, which should be enough to shut down Sheffield’s attack.

A midfield containing Marouane Fellaini and Bastian Schweinsteiger will be enough to win the midfield battle, with Memphis Depay, Ander Herrera and Andreas Pereira in front of them. Anthony Martial will once again lead the front line.

Check out the XI Here:

Romero; Darmian, McNair, Jones, Varela; Fellaini, Schweinsteiger; Depay, Herrera, Pereira; Martial.
