Predicted MUFC XI vs Villareal (Champions League away, 2021/22)

There’s no time to lick our wounds, Manchester United must go again. Let’s get right into our predicted MUFC XI vs Villareal.

Manchester United are now on the hunt for a new permanent manager, though in the meantime, it’s down to Michael Carrick and his coaching staff to start delivering results.

The good news for the ex-Red midfielder is that the pressure is off. There’s no doubt he’ll want to succeed and make a positive impression, should he wish to consider becoming a manager in future.

Villareal is by no means an easy first game, particularly away from home. But a win here would almost assure our place in the Champions League knockout rounds. Anyway, let’s try and delve deep into Carrick’s mind and try work out what he’s thinking…

Check out our predicted MUFC XI vs Villareal in full here:

David de Gea will keep his place in between the sticks. The superstar Spaniard has been in pretty good form this season. Let’s hope that continues.

The back four has a familiar look. That’s down to the squad being threadbare in that position, rather than this being a managerial choice. Alex Telles does come in for Luke Shaw, with Aaron Wan-Bissaka playing as the right-back. Victor Lindelof and Harry Maguire make up the back two.

Scott McTominay sits at the base of our midfield with a chance for redemption as he struggled at the weekend. Donny van de Beek was the shining light against Watford. He deserves to start here with Bruno Fernandes making up the midfield.

Cristiano Ronaldo loves these Champions League nights and I’m expecting to see him play another blinder here. Marcus Rashford will start off the left-wing, with Jadon Sancho making up the side.

Hopefully, this squad can pull through and deliver a massive result for their new interim boss.
