4-3-3: Manchester United XI vs Watford – Depay & Herrera start

Manchester United head to London this weekend, to take on a Watford side who have been one excellent form over the last few games. Ahead of the match, there has been plenty of injury concerns, meaning the gaffer has to change his pack somewhat.

A 4-3-3 formation with counter attacking ability is probably the best way to go about this one, and spearheading a front three full of pace is Wayne Rooney, with Jesse Lingard and Memphis Depay either side of him.

A midfield trio of Ander Herrera, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Morgan Schneiderlin provides the perfect blend of passing range, ability to run with the ball and defensive awareness.

The back five of Marcos Rojo, Chris Smalling, Phil Jones and Matteo Darmian looks solid enough, and with David de Gea in goal he’ll certainly be tough to beat when the defence is penetrated.
