Chris Smalling – Manchester United’s rock at the back.
Marcos Rojo – Has been good to see Rojo playing well at left-back.
Wayne Rooney – We’ve gone for Rooney in the No.10 role, out of pure optimism and hope more than anything else.
Memphis Depay – The Champions League is where Memphis has played his best football this season and it needs to be where van Gaal starts him.
Anthony Martial – Our best striker by a long mile and it’s a travesty he hasn’t been playing there every week.
Formation: 4-2-3-1 – To allow Wayne Rooney to play in the No.10 role, van Gaal will need to play with two defensive minded midfielders and that’s why we’ve gone with the 4-2-3-1.
