Predicted Line-up Vs Sevilla: 4-3-3
Stopper: David de GeaAlthough having Sergio Romero in the United squad, the world’s best keeper is an obvious option for the boss if not for some unfortunate circumstance. De Gea picks himself for the team through his enviable performances for the Red Devils.
Defenders: Antonio Valencia, Chris Smalling, Eric Bailly, Ashley YoungWhile Valencia and Smalling picks themselves for the match, Bailly has returned from injury and is fit to play, so he would replace Lindelof. Currently, no defender stands a chance in presence of the Ivorian in the existing Manchester United squad. Young would get the nod ahead of Shaw as he managed to contain the threat of Salah perfectly in the previous match.
Midfielders: Nemanja Matic, Scott McTominay, Juan MataMctominay provides solidity to United’s midfield he will start as well given Mourinho’s belief on the youngster and his recent successes. Mata would come in and would provide much needed creativity, which the Reds lacked in the 1st leg. Matic comes in as an undeniable choice for the manager.
Attackers: Alexis Sanchez, Romelu Lukaku, Marcus RashfordOut of United’s attacking options comprising Lukaku, Martial, Lingard, Rashford and Sanchez, only Sanchez has played Champions League for more than a season and has plenty of experience of knockout matches. Hence, it is no-brainer that Sanchez would play a pivotal role when it comes to United’s attack. However, he hasn’t particularly hit the ground running barring his performance against Huddersfield. So far his stats reads: 748 minutes, 15 shots and 1 goal. Rashford’s pace and new found confidence backed by 2 goals against Liverpool means he will be chosen ahead of Martial. Romelu Lukaku will be the obvious striker for the Reds. GGMU…..!!!!!! Manchester Utd vs Sevilla, Champions League round of 16, kickoff at 19.45 GMT.
