Manchester United face LASK in the first leg of their Europa League round of sixteen tie. With a game against Tottenham Hotspurs set to follow just three days later, Ole Gunnar could be tempted into rotating his squad for this European fixture.
Here is how they could line up.
Sergio Romero will start in goal as he has in all cup competitions this season. The Argentine is arguably the best back up goalkeeper in the league.
Meanwhile, the ever-present Aaron Wan Bissaka starts at right-back. Bissaka has been a very consistent performer since his summer move from Crystal Palace.
On the left, Brandon Williams will cover at left-back while Eric Bailly and Harry Maguire cover the center back positions.
Scott Mctominay recently returned from an injury and is yet to regain full match sharpness. The midfielder could start in midfield to help him gain more sharpness and speed of thought ahead of what will be a challenging end of season schedule for Manchester united.
Alongside him is the highly experienced and disciplined Nemanja Matic. The two should fit perfectly as a double pivot which will allow Bruno Fernandes to play with more freedom in the attacking midfield position.
Odion Ighalo has proved to be a handy deputy for Anthony Martial in the striking role and it would not be a surprise to see him start as Martial is rested for Spurs. Daniel James should continue with his search for a goal in the new year with a start on the left-wing.
Meanwhile, Mason Greenwood gets the nod on the right-hand side where he can cut inside with his stronger left foot.
Starting XI: Romero, Bissaka, Williams, Baily, Maguire, McTominay, Matic, Bruno, Greenwood, James, Ighalo.
