Predicting how Manchester United will line up against Sunderland.
Following Man United’s opening day defeat to Swansea City, manage Louis Van Gaal will be looking for a quick response from his player in order to get them back on track. With that in mind, we take a look at how the Red Devils could line up on Sunday afternoon.
GK: David de Gea
The Spaniard is in no danger of losing his place anytime soon and will continue unchallenged.
CB: Tyler Blackett
The youngster will get a further chance to impress thanks to the lack of transfer activity.
CB: Phil Jones
The stretchy faced defender will be looking for a better showing than last week.
CB: Chris Smalling
Smalling, like Jones, will have had an extra week to get to grips with the new formation.
The Brazilian will likely relieve Lingard of his duties now that he is fit again.
LWB: Ashley Young
Young will continue in his new unfamiliar role, which he seems to be revelling in.
