Matteo Darmian – Should be starting here.
Chris Smalling – The defensive powerhouse. Can he keep it up against PSV?
Marcos Rojo – He’ll need to be disciplined down the flank because CSKA Moscow exposed his weakness.
Morgan Schneiderlin – One of our first names on any team-sheet.
Marouane Fellaini – With so many injuries and concerns, playing Fellaini ahead of Schneiderlin in a midfield trio could work.
Jesse Lingard – My man-of-the-moment right now – love how direct and aggressive he is.
Memphis Depay – Van Gaal always play players against their old team-mates.
Juan Mata – Was a toss-up about whether Mata should be in the starting XI simply because of his lack of pac.e
Anthony Martial – Would be great to have him back and much needed.
Formation: 4-3-3 – This is a tough formation to choose because of the lack of central midfielders who are available but that could see van Gaal push Schneiderlin into a defensive midfield role.
