Interesting, but I'd say Jose will go for two holders, at least in the early stages, to give the defense a chance to settle. If he goes for your setup, he might start Herrera, he's been doing well in the preseason games and the match last weekend.

Based on what we saw against Leicester and Jose's substitutions, I'd say Valencia, Fellaini, Ibra and probably Rooney are certain to start. Lingard too if he's over the knock he picked up last weekend. Probably also Martial, although he hasn't exactly been lighting the place up yet. So the two questions I think are who he partners Fellaini with and which CBs he plays. Sampling's suspended and Bailly did alright, so he will likely go for Bailly-Blind again.

DDG
Tony V -- Bailly -- Blind -- Shaw
Herrera -- Fellaini
Lingard -- Rooney -- Martial
Ibra

Shaw and Martial weren't clicking on the left hand side the way Valencia was with Lingard and Mata, so I'm sure that's something they'll have been working on, and it wouldn't amaze me if one of them didn't start.

The forwards being allowed to shoot the ball should improve our chances of scoring.

Be interesting to see how Martial does this season. Should be better now he's surrounded by Shaw, Pogba and Ibra, but Gaal ran our attack through him at the expense of every other attacker. Doubt Mourinho will do the same.

No Pogba, stunted pre season

We will labor a bit but surely we are far better than Bournemouth. Jose's defensive discipline will shine through

2-0 United
