Predicted XI and formation: Swansea vs Manchester United

by Sam Peoples

It’s extremely unusual for Manchester United to have such a stable back five but that’s the situation Louis van Gaal has right now, and it’s fantastic.

For that reason, there’s no need to explain why any of the back five are in the starting XI because, as it stands, they are there by default.

Sergio Romero

Matteo Darmian

Chris Smalling

Daley Blind

Luke Shaw

Morgan Schneiderlin – He’ll return to the starting XI having been given a rest for the away game against Club Brugge.

Bastian Schweinsteiger – Louis van Gaal is rotating the German with Michael Carrick and as he started in midweek, odds are Schweinsteiger will be back in the team.

Ander Herrera – After his great performance in the No.10 role, combined with Adnan Januzaj‘s injury, it looks like he’ll get his second consecutive start.

Juan Mata – Has actually adapted quite well to the right-wing position. Doesn’t have pace but doesn’t need it thanks to Darmian’s overlaps.

Memphis Depay – Starting to build a partnership with Wayne Rooney that has great potential.

Wayne Rooney – Three goals in Belgium, can he follow it up in Wales?

Formation – 4-3-3: This is Louis van Gaal‘s preferred formation and he’ll be using it as much as he can.
