It’s always difficult to predict Manchester United’s starting XI, let alone when it is the first after a summer break, but here’s our predicted team to play Wigan Athletic on Saturday.
In defence, Luke Shaw is set to make his first start for Man United since September which is fantastic and we’ve also given a debut to Eric Bailly. Timothy Fosu-Mensah at right-back and Phil Jones in the middle make up the remaining two positions.
In midfield, we’ve chosen Michael Carrick and Ander Herrera as partners in a 4-2-3-1 formation. We could potentially see Fosu-Mensah there instead but I do think Mourinho will want to see both Carrick and Herrera in action.
