Predicted XI and Formation: Manchester United vs Barcelona

Predicted XI and Formation: Manchester United vs Barcelona

David de Gea – Back from injury, De Gea will step in goal for the first on Manchester United’s tour.

Matteo Darmian – Although Antonio Valencia has returned from injury, Louis van Gaal needs to see Darmian as his No.1 right-back from now on.

Phil Jones – Will get a run of games this pre-season. Can he make the most of it?

Chris Smalling – United’s first-choice centre-back.

Luke Shaw – Has been playing very well during the pre-season so far, let’s hope that continues.

Morgan Schneiderlin – Great debut, quieter second game but Schneiderlin will be starting in midfield.

Michael Carrick – Toss up with Ander Herrera but for stability we’ve gone for Carrick.

Andreas Pereira – The best player on tour so far and richly deserves to start.

Memphis Depay – Will he get used on the left wing where he thrived with PSV last season?

Juan Mata – Was very influential against San Jose Earthquakes and knows how to play the Barcelona way more than most.

Wayne Rooney – United’s captain and main striker will start.
