Manager: Pep Guardiola
1. David de Gea (GK)
The Spaniard made a number of key saves this week in the Premier League and his reliable presence between the sticks will be vital for the Red Devils on Wednesday.
2. Ashley Young (RB)
He has done well in terms of attack but needs to be more solid at the back. The veteran will have his work cut out against Cristiano Ronaldo.
3. Chris Smalling (CB)
He is unlikely to be benched amidst United’s defensive crisis but he needs to show significant improvement after a nightmarish display on Saturday.
4. Victor Lindelof (CB)
He has been in good form in the recent weeks and Mourinho will be hoping that he continues to impress
.5. Luke Shaw (LB)
The Englishman has done decently in the last few games and will have a tough battle in his hands against Juan Cuadrado.
6. Nemanja Matic (CDM)
The Serbian has been impressive with his interceptions and ball distribution, providing that much-needed cover for the backline.
7. Paul Pogba (RCM)
The Frenchman put in another good performance against Bournemouth and Mourinho will be banking on him to deliver the goods in the Champions League tie.
8. Fred (LCM)
The Brazilian has been quite tidy in the last couple of games and Mourinho should hand him another start.
9. Alexis Sanchez (LW)
He worked hard in the last game and picked up an assist for Martial’s goal. Mourinho should continue to persist with him.
10. Marcus Rashford (RW)
He should be rewarded for his injury-time winner on Saturday with a start in the Champions League.
