    This is the game to start Ndombele, Lo Celso and Hojbjerg together in midfield

    NDombele definitely!

    Sissoko and Hojbjerg more so. GLC is injured?

    I think that we took him off the to rest him for Sunday. Sissoko hasn't been in great form this season. Winks looks to be ahead of him in the pecking order and is beginning to build a good relationship with Hojbjerg.

    I’m not sure we have power or strength in our midfield atm without Sissoko.

    I’m still not seeing Hojbjerg as a DM, Sissoko is my comfort blanket as a don’t rate/have confidence in the current bunch.

    Sanchez will likely start as Toby play 180 minutes midweek.
    Lloris
    Aurier Sanchez dier reguilon
    Lo celso Ndombele Hojbjerg
    Lamela Kane Lucas

    Or 3 cbs

    Lloris
    Sanchez dier Tanganga
    Aurier Reguilon
    Ndombele Hojbjerg
    Lo celso
    Kane Lucas/Lamela

    This generally based on the minutes played over the last week.

    All of our best performances this season have been without Sissoko

    Ottawa, actually.
    -----------------------------Lloris-----------------------------

    Aurier--------Tanganga---------------Dier----------Reguilon

    ----------------------------Sissoko----------------------------

    -----------------Dele---------------Ndombele----------------

    Lucas--------------------------------------------------Lamela

    -----------------------------Kane-----------------------------

    Subs: Hart, Sanchez, Davies, Hojbjerg, Winks, Lo Celso, Gedson


    Leave Bergwijn at home, leave Toby at home...leave Davies at home, I guess. Keep as many players from Thursday away from the starting 11 as possible, let them rest.

    Lose, draw...not too concerned about it, although I would be over the moon if we won.It's been a good week in general, regardless of the result. Unless we get battered, anyway.

    After the break, with Sonny back, Bale fit, hopefully Skriniar or a new CB in the side, and a few players shipped out to make room...we'll be a much more balanced squad, and can look forward to catching up those points we dropped early on.

    Opposite view to me! This is a classic six-pointer against a big rival (in terms of where we want to be in May). Given Son and GLC's knocks, and Bale's absence, I'd take a point now

    Made a rod for our own backs by dropping points v Everton and Newcastle already so really do need the points here

    Agree. A draw at home v Newcastle is 2pts dropped, You cant get them back but you can a way towards it by picking them up somewhere you would not normally expect to, and Old Trafford is probably a prime example of that.
    You would probably have said 4pts from those 2 fixtures is about right (albeit a Home win/Away draw), so a win on Sunday would put us back on track.

    A defeat is not the end of the world this early in the season, but I just dont want to see us put in another lifeless performance at OT that we have done so many times of late, barring those couple of notable exceptions a few seasons back.
    If we play well, but they play better, then hey, not a lot you can do about that.

    Oh yes, and it would be nice to get through 90plus minutes without getting screwed over by the handball rule

    Last year's results against Man Utd were huge in terms of our RELATIVE positions in the league. I can't remember the details but I think we were clawing our way up to overtake them, but didn't beat them. Massive.


    I genuinely think our best chances to score will be silly dribbles and chips into defender's hands. It is unfair, but we are due a LOT of VAR luck (bottom of the VAR league) especially compared to Utd (top of the VAR league).

    So when Lamela/ Moura/ Bergwijn are doing their dribbles into a packed defence, they need to keep chipping chipping chipping it until it hits some unfortunate soul on the hand. Play by the rules.

    I think that is why he went off at h/t, after he got his second goal i saw him wince and think he got caught by the defender.
