Louis van Gaal has confirmed that Manchester United will once again use two different XI’s for the two halves against San Jose Earthquakes in the second game of the pre-season in order to give people as many minutes as possible.
They would compliment each other perfectly with Schweinsteiger likely to play the deeper role, allowing Schneiderlin to power forward with the ball when necessary. It’s what he did to great effect in the first game against Club America.
We’ve given Andreas Pereira a starting role in this game based on the fact he played so well in the opening game. He was electric and Van Gaal would certainly have taken notice of that.
