Louis Van Gaal has little problem selecting his starting xi so far these season thanks to series of factors such as injuries and familiar match day squad to choose from. Here is the predicted line up for the Man United team to face CSKA Moscow at Old Trafford on Tuesday:
David De Gea is sure to start ahead of Sergio Romero in goal. He handled everything the Crystal Palace threw at him on the weekend.
Chris Smalling and Phil Jones would be suitable to nullify the threat of CSKA Moscow striker Seydou Doumbia.
Mateo Damien should start at right back with Antonio Valencia still not certified fit to play against CSKA Moscow after picking up a foot injury.
Marcos Rojo is gradually making the left back position his own and Luke Shaw will have to fight hard to reclaim his place in the team when he finally recovers from his long injury lay off.
Morgan Schneiderlin and Bastian Schweinsteiger should continue in the midfield position as the preferred pair ahead of Carrick and Fellaini.
Juan Mata will be preferred ahead of his newest competitor Jesse Lingard for the right wing position.
Ashley Young should replace Martial at the left wing of United attack, he Is equally skilful, terrorises opposition defence and can support the defence if need be.
I fancy Ander Herrera to play behind the main striker anytime any day. He is still the best in that position at the moment with is runs and pinpoint passes.
Anthony Martial should play as the main striker, he is more direct and his pace and dribbling ability would cause the CSKA Moscow defence lots of problem.
