After losing out on the challenge of PSV Eindhoven in the first round of matches, manager Louis van Gaal now faces the tricky task of getting something out of Bundesliga giants Wolfsburg. You can predict how the outcome will turn out by using this bet365 offer code.
However, despite having a crucial clash with Arsenal to prepare for this weekend, van Gaal may be forced to pick his best XI to ensure that his Champions League trail remains on course.
Last season United fans were praying for this kind of fixture congestion, and now that they have it they will be forced to remind themselves of how to deal with the pile up.
Here’s how we think they’ll line up…
GK: David de Gea
The Spaniard has picked up from where he left off after looking set for the exit last month.
DL: Matteo Darmian
August’s Player of the Month will have to deliver again to build on his early season reputation.
CB: Daley Blind
The Dutch utility man has never looked over-awed in the heart of defence and will be tasked with keeping the German forward line quiet.
CB: Chris Smalling
Smalling has been somewhat of a renaissance man this season and will be relied upon to be the rock at the heart of the defence once again.
RB: Antonio Valencia
The Ecuadorian’s career has stalled a little recently, but he’ll be looking to impress with this rare start.
