Manchester United Potential XI vs Wolfsburg: Wayne Rooney back in

by Sid Choudhary

Manchester United travel to the Volkswagen Arena to take on Wolfsburg in the Champions League, needing a win to progress to the last 16.

The squad is riddled with injuries going into the game, with Morgan Schneiderlin and Paddy McNair the latest players struggling with knocks following the weekend’s draw with West Ham.

Michael Carrick could return to the startling lineup following Schneiderlin’s injury and the need for a win could see Ashley Young begin the game at left-back. He provides a more attacking emphasis from full-back compared to his challengers for the position and could provide the spark needed for Man United to get a goal.

Wayne Rooney may not be fit to make his return from injury but if he does, he’ll likely go straight into the No.10 role, taking Juan Mata‘s place with the Spaniard slightly out of sorts recently.

The youthful, pacey nature of the frontline could be the difference between United and their German opposition. Memphis Depay, Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard will all try get beyond the defence and make things happen in the final third, something that has been missing from the Reds play in recent times.
