4-2-3-1: Man Utd XI vs Watford – Herrera starts, Rooney up top

Manchester United head South to take on Watford this weekend, after a two-week hiatus due to international football. The trip to London certainly won’t be easy, with the newly-promoted side looking a tough outfit to take all three points against.

Team selection is huge, and after the international fixtures Louis van Gaal will know who is available to play in this one.

Ander Herrera should get the nod in the middle after being rested for two weeks, with the speed of Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard either side of him. Wayne Rooney will start up top after a good performance for England.

The holding midfielder spots will be taken by Bastian Schweinsteiger and Morgan Schneiderlin, with an extremely solid back four of Chris Smalling, Daley Blind, Matteo Darmian and Marcos Rojo. David de Gea will obviously continue in goal.
