4-3-3: Manchester United XI vs Watford – Herrera misses out

Manchester United head South to take on newly promoted Watford this weekend, after a two-week break due to the international break. Louis van Gaal will be hoping to kick the hectic winter period off on the right foot, and a win away from home would be a good start.

Getting into the starting line-up, we could see a 4-3-3 deployed, with full of pace and creativity in the front three. Wayne Rooney will lead the line, with Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard either side of him.

Juan Mata will be reverted to a more familiar #10 role, with the sold pairing of Morgan Schneiderlin and Bastian Schweinsteiger backing him up.

The back five of Marcos Rojo, Phil Jones, Chris Smalling and Matteo Darmian, with David de Gea in goal has been extremely solid in the games they have played together. So hopefully that’ll continue and we can come away with all three points.
