Manchester United can seal their place through to the knockout stages of the Champions League with a victory at home to PSV Eindhoven tomorrow night, but Louis van Gaal’s task hasn’t been made any easier with several key men missing first-team training due to injuries.
Ander Herrera, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Michael Carrick and Phil Jones were all absent from the training session today, which will certainly give the manager a few selection dilemmas.
That means we could see Daley Blind shifted back into the midfield, with Paddy McNair slotting into the back four alongside Chris Smalling.
One area that still looks particularly strong is the front line, and that has been boosted with the return of both Anthony Martial and Wayne Rooney – who look set to be recalled to the starting line-up.
De Gea; Darmian, Smalling, McNair, Rojo; Blind, Schneiderlin; Lingard, Rooney, Depay; Martial.
