4-3-3: Manchester United starting XI vs Moscow – Rooney dropped, Phil Jones returns

Tonight sees Manchester United’s fourth Champions League group game of the season, with Louis van Gaal’s side currently sitting in second place in their group. The lads have a real chance to throw a marker down by getting a win tomorrow, and putting some distance between themselves and the chasing duo.

Ahead of the game there was some mixed injury news from Louis van Gaal. Memphis Depay will miss the game whereas Phil Jones has been passed fit.

The 23-year old will come straight back into the side alongside Chris Smalling, with Matteo Darmian and Marcos Rojo holding down the wide spots.

Morgan Schneiderlin is looking likely to miss the game due to personal reasons, so we’ll probably see Michael Carrick holding down that defensive midfielder role.

There could also be no Wayne Rooney in the side as Louis van Gaal hinted he may rest his captain – this could provide Anthony Martial with the chance he needs to secure that regular starting spot as a striker.
