Manchester United: Romero; Darmian, Smalling, Blind, Shaw; Carrick, Herrera; Januzaj, Mata, Memphis; Rooney
Subs: Johnstone, McNair, Schneiderlin, Schweinsteiger, Young, Fellaini, Chicharito
Herrera has been limited to appearances from the substitute’s bench so far this term and he will no doubt be eager to impress following his inclusion in the starting XI.
Daley Blind lines up alongside Chris Smalling at the heart of defence, while Adnan Januzaj continues his run of games in the first-team. It is a strong XI and one that should be capable of seeing Man United through to the Champions League group stages. However, van Gaal will undoubtedly remind his players against complacency.
