Predicted Starting XI: CSKA Moscow vs Manchester United – Martial benched

With all four teams locked on three points in Champions League Group B, Manchester United have a real chance to take control if they can muster a victory away in Russia tomorrow night. Louis van Gaal has met the media and give us some key team news ahead of the clash.

Manchester United will be without the versatile Ashley Young through injury, with the gaffer also confirming that James Wilson has not travelled due to an ongoing illness.

After a superb performance away at Everton over the weekend, Louis van Gaal won’t want to tinker with things too much, but I do expect a few of changes.

We should see Daley Blind return to the fold as Phil Jones is just back from a lengthy injury and probably unable to play two games in such a short space of time.

Anthony Martial more than deserves a rest in this one, with Louis van Gaal re-calling the other Dutchman in Memphis Depay.

The other change will be Michael Carrick coming back into the side in place of Bastian Schweinsteiger, who’ll be saved for the Manchester derby.

Predicted XI

De Gea; Darmian, Smalling, Blind, Rojo; Carrick, Schneiderlin; Mata, Herrera, Depay; Rooney.
